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 everyone,
I had a will drawn up in 2010 after Decree Absolute. I want o hangs it now as I had said ex h could live with the children here until they are 21, but he has now bought a house so I know they will be happy to live there if I died!!!

I read somewhere that I can just write a letter and sign it and keep it at home. Is that right? My solicitor has the original will.

Thanks.

Errr no i think you getting mixed up with a letter of wishes, the will needs to be updated which should be at minimal cost to you, in fact wiki offer a will service from scratch for £49.

Thanks for the reply. Should I just write down the changes I want made and get solicitor to update he will then? It''s a bit of a nuisance but can''t face doing a whole new one.

Yup that`s all you need just provide the update and the solicitor will provide a draft for your approval, should be nice and easy.
