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.

Buying Property after moving out

I am new to this site and would like some advice.

I am in the process of moving out from my husband''s home and then filing for divorce. While this process is put in motion and working its way through, I would like to buy a flat for myself after I move out.

So the question is - will that flat be part of divorce settlement if it has been bought after I move out? I mean does my husband have any rights over it?

Any help or guidance would be much appreicated. Thank You.

Yes, the flat will be in the pot. There won''t be any automatic right for your husband, but it is an asset available to you and so the court will take it into account in working out the correct division of assets in one way or another.
