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.

Sounds like a nightmare. I feel for you hun.

Are you still contributing to the mortgage on the marital home?

I suspect I''m going to do a similar thing.
I just couldn''t bear the thought of going home to that every night.

My guess is that he will fight against selling the house if he can, but like your ex, he couldn''t afford to run the house alone.

Have you tried mediation?
It sounds like a good halfway house between lawyers & courts and going it alone.

WR, thanks for the welcome and the advice. I''ll bear it in mind when the time comes. I really hope we can keep this on a respectful and dignified level.
The thought of the conversation we need to have terrifies me, so I''ll be keen to keep it as calm and short as possible.

I hope you''ve managed to find a new life for yourself and a see future that holds some good stuff.
