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.

I have filed for ancillary relief - form A and compelted my form E.
I expect the date for the hearing to be mid April.

Now we have no assets only debt so my solicitors are making my stbx the offer that I take the debt (circa 100k) and 1.5k in the house and he takes the future income of the company estimated 6k if he does nothing with it!!

Now in the vague hope that my ex decides to be reasonable if he accepts the offer do we have to go through the whole financial court thing or can it be speeded up?

(I am not holding my breath as he is now threatening me with baliffs!!)

Might seem a silly question or am I missing something

Why take on 100k of debt, do you intend to go bankrupt shortly after taking it on

Dont accept any debt except that which is in your name.

Threat of bailiffs is an idle bluff. Tell him where to stick it.

Let the courts decide if he doesnt take his share of debts.

80% of what ppl say they will do is hot air, they dont have the financial clout to carry it out.

Good for you, I have debts also and don't intend using them in the 'Ancillary Relief' I incurred them, even though others benefited
