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 have'nt misunderstood, I understand that as soon as you get married then you can no longer apply for AR.
I was trying to say to Anon, that even though the FMH is in his name only, it does not matter, she can still lay claim on it years and years later, unless he gets a Consent Order and finalises everything.
In my case my partners FMH, was in MY name and his name, we owned it jointly, as I remortgaged my property to pay his off, as we couldnt afford both mortgages. As soon as his FMH sold, (took us nearly 3 years to sell) he gave me the money back. His ex got a Section 37 order against my hubby, (they never told the Judge I owned it jointly with him,) they got this order granted ex parte and make out at every avaliable opportunity that he was underhand in selling the property, even though we have a letter from them some 28 months before stating they know we are trying to sell the property. They got this 37 against us AFTER we sold it.
And funny enough before I got married to my NP I made him ring a Solicitor to ask if his ex could lay claim to anything of mine if we were married, the answer was "Is everything crossed out on the prayer? "Yes! he replies "Then no Sir up until the day you marry she can apply for AR by putting in Form A, the day you marry? Too Late!!!! I say dont you mean SHE needs to be married? O NO! HE needs to be married then she cant come after him!!! (I wish I had gone with MY instincts)
What a joke! How wrong was that solicitor?
Anyway you live and learn and now I have learnt, big time!
