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 am trying to work out a load of figures and need some clarity on the affect CSA calculated child support and spousal maintenance has on Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit.

Does the calcluation of CTC and WTC require that the Child support and spousal maintenance figures are added to the persons income?

To clarify, Child Tax Credit & I believe Working Tax Credit do not take account of any child maintenance paid, but I am not sure if this would apply to Spousal Maintenance. Why not just ring the Tax Credits Office and enquire. A very common question.

As far as Council Tax & Housing Benefit goes, they take account of all monies paid to you when working out your entitlement.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Sarah
