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.

Could you view this as positive? i.e. he has realised maybe last time he should have helped mroe with your son when you were in hospital and is trying to do that now?

Yeah i understand what you are saying emma but when you have gone through 16 months of pure hell from him im reluctant to let him help..my son had his first toe op in dec he wasnt bothered then..but all of a sudden when hes realises that the stress that hes put me through may be the cause of my illness hes concerned...it doesnt wash well with me!

I agree with Emma that it is likely best to move forward and see this positively. Maybe he is actually concerned and wants to help?

Can you live in the present? That means not blaming for the past and not worrying about the future. It''s tough!

I know with my recent health worry my stbx asked if I wanted her there. She asked very nicely and told me that she understood if I didn''t. I (hopefully) politely declined and then called her with the positive news when the tests were over.

It''s tough. Figuring out this new relationship. I hope that both of you are doing your best to be positive and the best parents you can be!
