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.

Would anyone know whether or not I would be entitled to spousal maintenance from my x2b?
He left a month ago, without any warning - taking all our savings with him.... since then I have heard from his once to say that he wants a divorce and to sell our house.He left me with no money, closed our joint account...
He hasn't sent me any money to pay the mortgage, council tax, bills etc.
He earns over £3000 a month - I earn around £650 a month....

I would have thought so - put all the detail you have into the Divorce Calculator on this site and see what comes out.

Also, don't forget that those savings that he has taken out are still jointly yours, from the point of view of splitting the assets.

I wouldn't be entitled to child tax credits..... but I would possibly be entitled to working tax credits I think - if I knew how to go about claiming... I also think I may be entitled to council tax reduction/rebate, but again, I will have to find out how I go about claiming....

You may be entitled to a reduction in your council tax.I called the local council and advised them that there was only one adult living in the property and would there be a applicable reduction.

The number to call for working tax credit is
