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.

Hi, I've been separated for 19 years and 5 months and am keen to know if I will have to pay anything to divorce? I'm a first time user so please accept my apologies if I'm asking my question in the wrong place!

To answer that question you will need to provide a lot more info.

After such a long marriage you will have to share the fruits of the marriage (the assests and income) with your wife. How much she gets will depend on many factors such as:
- her income
- your income
- her ongoing needs
- your ongoing needs
- any kids, how many how old, who will look after them

Look at the input page of the Divorce Calculator on this site and you will get an idea of what factors are taken into consideration.

So - you could give the calculator a spin

Or you could provide the detail in the forum and someone will no doubt provide an opinion
