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.

Ask the bank to put a stop on the account.

Open your own personal account. Transfer your direct debits to that account.

Start mediation to sort things out.

18 month marriage? No, you take out what you put in. If the house has appreciated in 18 mths, they may be entitled to 50% of increase in value, but in current climate, i think it is unlikely

Best of luck - Deep breaths.......calm.....:)
