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.

I have been divorced for 2 years and life is great....so great I panic it could be challenged. I have no dependants and had a final settlement divorce(think it is called that) I was not asked to pay maintenance.Monies all transferred years ago. I was told by my solicitor at the time that the divorce could not now be challenged by my ex in any circumstances by the nature of the settlement. i cannot remember the name of this settlement.....can someone help me as I wake up at night scared it could all start again.

Do you have a court sealed/stamped consent or court order in relation to financial settlement?

If you have been divorced and you have a clean break. There were no dependents and I must assume that all financials were discharged then you are truly free. The only way that anything could go wrong is if you didnt settle financials.

But I know the feeling. That little feeling in the back of yr head that says, life is great. I cant beleive its so great. I must be in for a fall.

If you look at every culture, they all have this view. Everything going great. I must be due some bad luck or its too good to be true. Life is not like that. Well it is and it goes in cycles. Ever wondered why the kettle blows, the microwave blows and the head gasket goes all at the same time? Thats life working its cycle. But this is normal cycle stuff.

Life is short. Someone once said, you shoot out of your mums privates at 1000 MPH and you hit a brick wall 6 foot away. That is what life is. Short. But the difference is what you do in that 6 foot. So dont worry that things are going ok. Enjoy it. Cos one day you will hit that wall. And you dont know when that is. You could be an inch away or 5 foot. Live your life like you just stole it. And forget the past. That is gone. C.
