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.

:SMain asset is marital home purchased 13 years ago. It remains in the orignal purchasers name.

The spouse moved in 9 years ago and has contributed circa 10%-20% of household expenditure.

The mortgage has increased as wedding was paid for by raising additonal funds on the mortgage. It was agreed that this expenditure would be paid 50:50. Spouse has been unable to repay any part.

Mortgage and service charges have been paid by the home purchaser only.

There is also a time share purchased by home owner (again under mortgage) in both names. Spouse has repaid less than 40% of share of cost.

Service charges on time share have been borne by homeowner over 4 years' ownership.

What proportion of the assets would the lower contributor to the marital expenditure be entitled to?
