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.

You really only have two options.

1) Talk to him to make him see sense and start providing you with enough to live on.

2) Begin divorce proceedings and apply to the court for interim maintenance. The full process to get divorced and agree a financial settlement will likely take a long while (judging by your husbands behaviour and likely non-cooperation). So the interim maintenance order is a way for the court to order him to pay you money in the meantime whilst the divorce proceeds.
