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.

Solo travel - is this is the only option for me?

I had been planning to go to Canada in 2009 with a friend. She is now threatening to pull out of travelling due to money worries. I still really want to go to Canada with or without her. Have others faced the idea of solo travel, and what did they do?

I mean, when I was with my ex I would have travelled with him (obviously). Now 2 years after the split, I am ready to travel (really need to travel)and as he has already agreed to look after our children full time while I'm gone, this is an opportunity to good to miss!!

I don't fall into the 18-35 youth market (I'm 39), and don't want to sit on a bus looking at churches with a bunch of people who all have artifical hips and blue rinses, but everyone I know in my age group is either married (so would travel with their partner & family) or not interested in travel at the moment.

So, people, any suggestions as to how I find myself a travel buddy??? I don't care if it's male or female, just someone who is interested in going to similar places to me.

Regards to all
Curious M.

im 25 and i have lots of friends of all ages who travel all over the world by themselves, you will make friends as you go along, i think that you could enjoy it more when you go alone because you can do all the things that you want to do. i would NEVER fear being alone!as long as your prepared to meet and make new friends. dont bother with all these 18-30 clubs or anyother club of that sort, just do it alone and and meet other people out there who are doing the same thing along the way.

Hi Curiousmiss
I am newly separated & just about to start mediation. There is no going back. HOWEVER my (soon to be ex) wife & I have (or is it had?) very different interests - we would always have a family holiday together & we would have a separate holiday each. I have been on a number of holidays as a solo traveller & relly enjoyed them- try exodus- the first was really daunting but you are generally travelling with a bunch of like minded people who are up for a good time. Relax & enjoy!!
