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.

:unsure:Could anyone help me on this? I have 5 With Profits Life Policies maturing in different years, for differing amounts-some for approx £2000-£3000 + a larger final one that was predicted to be around £15000. Do I I have to get a cash value equivalent, like I am doing on pension or what? I presume b*****d will be entitled to a share? I am really struggling to get my head round all the financial bit of this divorce lark!! Any advice gratefully received.

Yes. You should obtain a current surrender value from the life policy providers.
