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.

Hi Riley
Hope someone with experience replies to you. I think you need to sort your financials out...probably should have done it long before now. I may be wrong but I think that your new joint property assetts can be included in the pot when you and your Ex divorce.

I have been separated for about a year and despite the problems I would have had raising the finance anyway (already listed on FMH mortgage), I would not have acquired assetts because I dont want it affecting the outcome. Hopefully its sorted now (soon) and I can get back on the housing ladder (if its not too late).

Good luck
