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 don't think he'll get away with that ! His earning capacity is a resource - I stress the CAPACITY.

What's he going to live on ? He might have problems getting jobseekers allowance if he gave up work without a good reason.

Does he have any assets you can claim against ?

I just hope that some judges read these forums (they probably don't) - but just to have them realise what can go on in a divorce - for example the underhand playing. It is really quite staggering at some of the tactics.

I do realise that my situation is quite dire and that both my solicitor and barrister have agreed that my ex and his father have been quite viscious, particularly as they no I have no family - and I think that it has been a bit of sport to my ex and his family because I dared to leave them.

However, it is also the plight of other people on here that really saddens me. It all seems so very unneccessary.
