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.

Was this post written in reply to my previous communication ? I thought it probably was.

You say your ex has somewhere to live, so presumably his housing needs are satisfied. You say you re-mortgaged your previous property to raise money to put into your new joint home.

Do you still have this property ? Is it an option for you to live there ? What is to happen to the family home ? Is it to be sold, or will one of you occupy it ?

I don't know enough to be able to offer sensible advice. It looks as if you have been married a very long time, and with long marriages, the Courts are much less likely to worry too much about who originally provided what. The important point for you to remember is that both of you need a home. Of course you can always use the argument that, if he thought the deed of covenant was fair at the time, why does he think it's not fair now ?
