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.

Consent orders rejected by the court?

My ex was just the same, no way would she see a solicitor, it meant we were called to court so the judge could make sure all was well, it was a bit of a farce but it was sorted in just a few minutes in the end.

So if rejected do you have to go to the court to justify it all infront of the judge in person, or response can be given in writing? Or it could be either depending on the judge? Sorry to be a nuisance.

A Consent Order is either approved or rejected. If it''s rejected it''s back to the drawing board. Judges have a duty to ensure the terms of a consent order comply with the law. Sometimes a judge may hold a short hearing before signing off an order to clarify a particular point and/or ensure both parties have understood the implications of the agreement.
