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 money in investment bonds. Can I put one of these in Trust for my grandchildren so it does not need to be declared as an asset?

If it makes, or is likely to make, a difference to the financial outcome the court can treat it as if the money is still yours.

What you could do is wait until the financial settlement is sorted then transfer your money into a Trust for your grandchildren. Once you have a financial agreement you can do what you like with the investments.
