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.

You may be entitled to legal help depending on your means. I think you will find something about this on the CAB website called adviceguide.

It's important to realise that legal aid is a loan and not a gift and may have to repaid out of your ' winnings ' if that's not too provocative a term.

It is always worth while considering what you can do to keep costs down. There is a section on this subject somewhere on this website.

It's also worth considering what you might reasonably expect to get out of the divorce process. If this is substantial, you may be able to agree with your solicitors to pay them when it's all over and done with.
