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.

Do I still need Mediation?

I've been seperated from my wife for over fours years now and we've agreed to formalise the divorce. We have both agreed whats fair in seperating the finances. Do we still need to go to mediation?

I don't think so. What would be the point if you have managed to agree without? Mediation is for those of us who can't manage to be that civilised.

Mediation is purely voluntary so it’s your choice. Although my stbx and I have agreed most things there are still a few points that have to be ironed out and mediation will help to solve those little thorns. The main thing I am going to mediation for is primarily the cost of doing the same with Solicitors would be astronomical and they can construct agreements/contracts that can be taken to a solicitor and later ratified in Court (a Consent Order I think). You also get your first session for free so it may be worth organising that to see exactly what they can do for you. :)
