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'm all in favour of keeping things simple, but in my experience if things aren't done properly they can come back and haunt you in the future. Technically your divorce isn't legal and I think it needs sorting to ensure future claims can't be made against you.

Or in case you want to marry again. Technically if your divorce isn't legal then presumably you aren't actually divorced, so any future marriage would be bigamous.

Hi, just received a copy Extract Decree of Divorce. One sheet of paper which literally has date of marriage, place of marriage and "The Sheriff pronounced Decree divorcing the Respendent from the Applicant. This extract is warrant for all execution hereon." Also has court address, ref no, her address, my address and official stamp of the court. I've seen some decrees before and they didn't look like this. Is this real? And would you get in touch with her about the money, using the fact that she falsified dates etc, or would you just go straight to a solicitor?

The divorce decree sounds real enough. I would get sol straight onto the case of non divorce and either let him deal with finances at the same time or you can negotiate directly with your wife.
