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.

In the original story of Cinderella, we find Cinderella and her step-mother and step-sisters in a terribly disfunctional and co-dependent relationship.

To make matters worse, Cinderella is a classic ''victim'', totally refusing to take responsibility for her life as she drones day in and day out, "Some day my prince will come".

Enter a manipulative control freak - Cinderella''s fairy god-mother - who sets up a devious plan to fool the prince. Cinderella, having no backbone whatsoevern goes along with this and rides oof to the ball pretending to be something she most definately is not.

Our young prince, fool that he is, is smitten and never looks beyond all the makeup. Cinderella, feeling insecure (for good readon), disappears at the stroke of midnight, petrified that the prince will find out who she really is.

But never fear. Having delved into his past history, Cinderella''s fairy god-mother knew that the prince would be drawn to any women who played really hard to get.

Our prince finally finds her via the famous glass slipper, only to discover she isn''t quite the person she pretended to be.

Nevertheless, he rides off with her into the sunset knowing in his heart that he can change her into anything he wants her to be - and we all know he is right!

And if we tuned in twenty years later, we''d find Cinderella sitting around worrying that some young damsel with a smaller foot might lure her "security blanket" away from her. Yuk!
