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.

Have just completed Divorce Calculator. Have included costs etc of ex including amounts for new child with girlfriend. But what if she is working are any of these costs her responsibility, or are her earnings just ignored?

Any input would be welcome

The factor under consideration here is that cohabiting reduces your ex/x2b's need because he is sharing living costs with a new partner.

Does any of this really matter...similar scenario for me, but all my solicitor wanted to know was how much I could borrow to buy my spouse out of the house... I don't think she could be bothered to figure how to weight all the mitigating factors. So I'm left wondering if they really count for anything. BTW I wish I could believe the output from the calculator, but solicitors on both sides don't seem to be anywhere near the figure I got.
