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.

Stay or go?

Hi I would really appreciate some advice. Since posting on here a few months ago my divorce has now been made Absolute and I am really unsure about what to do next. I live in a really small village with my 2 children (6 and 10) and so does my ex! He has a new partner and things between us are pretty amicable. However I have no family nearby and would really like to move nearer to them. Ex does not have a problem with this and he would see the kids the same as he does now. It would however involve putting the kids in a new school. I personally would really like a new start away from here and don''t know what to do for the best. Trouble is everywhere I go my ex is there and although we are civil to each other I feel trapped. If I stay until the kids leave school that would be ten years time. So do I stay here feeling unhappy or move away?

Go for it.
The children will be fine in a new school ,my two were thrown into new schools in Australia for 6 months when we went there on a sabbatical .They loved it and made loads of new friends .
Surely it is best for them that their Mum is happy .And if their dad still gets to see them as much ,sounds perfect.(well as perfect as poss. in these situations)
Good Luck

IF the ex is fine with it then I agree too. At 6 and 10 the kids will be ok. It''s a good time for a move.
