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.

Our family home is currently on the market and is overpriced as since we went on the market has been extremely quiet and house prices have fallen slightly.

I want to lower the asking prirce by £15K but my Ex Husband To Be is not letting me and is consulting his solicitor.

Is there anything I can do to get the price dropped if he still refuses as I can not stand living here any longer with him and need to move on with my life.

Any comments will be very much appreciated.

Rent somewhere till it is sold, that will get you out of the house.

Start court proceedings if he continues to delay.

I would stay put, that way you have some control over the sale of the property.

Might be a bit 'frosty' but staying put and digging your heels in will send a message to spouse.

Market is a bit grim, but 15k seems a lot to drop unless it was overpriced in the first place...

Buyers market though, so makes sense to keep the price highish, leaving room for potential buyers to haggle.

Good Luck

:unsure:I know, it is pretty tough living with someone you were once in love with (and may still be) whilst dealing with the nitty gritty. I suspect he will hang in there until the bitter end. Not sure that renting will do it either as, to my mind, it is like giving money away.
Horrible as it seems, I would hang in there (I am). These are difficult times, and most people are out for their own interests only. PS Just eaten a WHOLE box of brandy snaps. I'm not even going anywhere near thinking of the calorie values. I'll go for a long walk tomorrow.
