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.

Settlement when house is owned by wife only

I have split from my wife after only 15 months of marriage. During this time she lived in London where she rented a room so she could do her job.

I paid her mortgage on the property which was out of London every month from my own money and we split the bills pretty much down the middle. I maintained the property and that was my home.

Now I have moved out she is saying I'm entitled to nothing and wont even give me a share of presents received during the short marriage.

Is this correct as I'm wondering whether the mortgage payments, reduction in outstanding mortgage and property rise could have some bearing on this.

Any advice greatfully received.
