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.

Sorry to ask you more questions but
1. what area are you looking to live? London
2. You say you have a disibility so you must be entitled to benefits. What is your NET income including CM?
3. Would it be inconceivable to move to a less expensive area but still in the school encatchment area?
4. Can you not work at all? or is the fact you havent work in ''donkys'' why you think you cant get a job?

There isn''t really enough information for people to help. Divorce settlements depend on the overall circumstances and we would need the breakdown of equity, any pensions, savings or investments; duration of the marriage + any co-habitation before; respective ages, the ages of the children and the number of nights they are to stay with each parent.
