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.

basically after a bad marriage where the ex, cheated and also bought the house in her name with my £25k deposit.

its finally come round the 2 years of separation as she wouldn''t agree to the adultery incase it left "black marks" on her character.

just looking for some advice,
she has the house with majority of things i bought (fridge,setee) and so on, and she lives with a partner.

i have no savings, my own car and live at my parents but i do have a pension.

according to the maintenance calculator i should be paying her 1k in maintenance, because i earn more than her.

her partner pays half of everything.

help? :ohmy:

Don`t worry about what reason you use for the divorce it really matters not, use two years separation by consent.

What do you earn net per month?.

What really matters is you have an agreement to both divorce and divide assets, you let her keep the cash and she leaves your pension and income alone, but while you have an agreement get it written as a Consent Order, far too many leave this and then it goes pear shaped.

If you have an agreement formalise it as soon as you can.
