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.

Hi, my husband and I split 2 and half years ago, my son was 2.5 years old and my daughter 3 months. I think anger kept me going for a while. We have always arranged visitations with the children together as he doesnt cope well with my son now 5. In May he announced that he wanted to try again and if there was any chance of saving our marriage then he wanted to give it ago. By this time my anger had subsided and as we were getting on so well I agreed. I didnt move him in straight away just incase the issues he left in the first place were still there, as we all know, leopards do not change their spots. But he had convinced me that he was sorry and had learnt from his mistakes. By November 07 things had not been going well, the cracks were appearing again and issues reappearing and then I found that he was seeing his last girlfriend behind my back. It is well and truly over this time, no more chances. Hes actually moved in with her now. Didnt take him long. If anything, it has hurt more this time, because he made no effort and didnt give things a chance and of course being right on top of Christmas, but I have now started to plan the year ahead for me and the children. I have booked weekends to see friends and have booked a cheap holiday in Great Yarmouth with family and a few nights out. Life does go on without our partners and just planning a few things for yourself to look forward to will help tremendously. You will have your ups and downs as I still do but all of a sudden you will start to mend and realise that things can actually get better for you.

Keep strong. x
