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.

It depends on whether you are talking about child support or spousal maintenance.

Child support is usually until the child is 19 (or finishes secondary education) under CSA rules - but can be ordered for longer (through uni) by a court.

Spousal maintenance can be for life.

We could help more if you told us which type of support and under what agreement it is currently being paid (Consent Order, court order, Separation Agreement, CSA etc)
