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's good that you've been generous, but just watch that doesn't come back at you in court!
She could claim holidays under her 'needs', and argue that you've always enjoyed good holidays. I'm not sure these days what constitutes 'needs' requirements? Or if holidays form part of the spousal maintenance package? (Not cheaper you just blast her off the Moon?)

Years ago, spouses could argue they they wished to be kept in the style they've become accustomed too.

Doubt that Balony still stands, but the more you do, the more she can claim dependency on you.

However, it remains your choice if you haven't yet cancelled the credit cards.

Whilst I've got your attention: What times scales are your Hearings running to? How long did you wait for these court appointments? (I'm yet to face AR hearings next year).... Do you have a re-scheduled Hearing yet?

Curios, to know how many years I've got to go!

This is a very old thread. Why don't you start your own thread, tell us a little bit about your situation and outline the sort of help you are looking for.

Wow, well done you. I just wanted to ask - what are the fundamental questions I should be prepared for, my case is somewhat more complicated as there are the marital home which we both own, then a property I had before we married and one I bought by mortgaging the first property I owned to buy a second one.

Is the judge just concerned with figures or who had what in the beginning?
