What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Hello and welcome to wiki. Sorry you need to be here. This sounds a very unhappy situation to be in and I can appreciate why you want to take steps to protect yourself, your son and the family property.

The length of the marriage is significant in respect of how assets are divided and I''m not very sure when a short marriage qualifies as a long one however someone will be along soon who will be able to advise you about that.

You''re in the right place to get sound advice from wise wikis.
