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.

What can I do if my husband refuses to complete the form? Had hoped we could do the divorce and settlement amicably and have discussed what the finance arrangment will be but now he won''t complete the form? What can i do?

Hi Hennie,

Welcome to wiki.

Unfortunately you can''t force someone to be amicable. :(

Have you tried mediation?

If you have a solicitor, maybe a strongly worded letter will help your case otherwise you''ll need to start the process of going to Court.

Thanks. I was hoping to do the divorce via wikivorce full divorce and financial settlement package as I have very little money. Did go to a solicitors and spent £500 on just a few letters and advice! My husband has always had control of the finances and I have no idea what money there is in shares, isa''s, pensions, stocks etc..so he is finding it difficult to come clean on what we have. I have moved out and bought a house on my own but have just lost my job, so I really need to get some financial support. He still lives in the family home - which is fully paid for and has no mortgage.
Will look at mediation again..thanks.

mediation only works when both parties are willing to reach a (compromise) conclusion, it will not work if one or both are untruthful or will not budge on what they want :(

However, if you apply for mediation you''ll get an initial assessment alone and then they will contact him - if he refuses then you''ll get a Form which you can take to Court which states you''ve tried Mediation and it wouldn''t work.

You''re able to go to Court even if you can''t afford representation. You can self rep (Litigant In Person) and/or have a McKenzie Friend.

Maybe one more letter from a Sol indicating Court is the way forward and see what your stbx does?
