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.

LIP stands for Litigant in person , i.e. someone representing themself in court without the aid of a solicitor/barrister.

Louise is referring to the 9 pounds something an hour a Litigant In Person can in theory charge for their time in preparing their own case.

Of perhaps in her case it is the charge she intends to make every time her mouth moves...(lip geddit?)
