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.

Firstly who tried to take your house? Mortgage company or the courts? I know from my divorce he has not paid for 18 months and told mortgage company he wont pay a penny. He also wants everything and has never paid a mortgage payment 7 years however his name is on the mortgage.
Emptied the house of valuables and have not seen him 18 months.
Try to go CAB for legal advise any numbers that are free are good. Otherwise mine is costing more than a wedding not good.

Have you tried cccs councelling service for a bit of help with the budget you have.

Otherwise you could take him to court and ask mortgage interim payments until divorce.

hi i wanted quick but he has dragged it out for 3 yrs,since he gone he not paid penny towards or contributed to the house,not even said here kids heres a tenner get something...and i would split if he paid something towards the house.We only had mortgage 18 months b4 he left paid 4 grand off it in that time now he wants half.My mortgage is 42 grand but the house is worth 140grand..i want to move but cant afford to pay him pay debts and rehouse my self and kids with whats left.uniforms to get i asked him to help..point blank no the 35 a week i get off him is enough he said..just had enough it keeps going on and on.surely he should be contributin something to the mortgage his name on it to.now been told mediation could take up to 7 sessions with him,and if that not work then go court,then that could take months to get there,i cant go through another 12months of not noing.
