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.

Hi, I suspect that her partners house will not be sold until the children are 18 because it is their main residence, whereas in your case it appears that yours stay mainly with their mum so different rules apply. A word of warning too, backing up what could happen if your ex pushes for it. I left my home with my teenagers and moved into rented accomodation, ex promptly moved his girlfriend and her son in. 2 and 1/2 years later the court told him he had to move out and let me and the children have our home back, we needed a 3 bedroomed house, he was living in ours. The judge called it a no brainer. Id get this tied up while she is happily ensconced in her new life

Happe: I really do want to get this signed-off asap - and I believe that my ex actually does.

Funnily enough, only this evening I received texts from my ex asking if I had seen a solicitor in order to ''make her an offer'' (she has once more stated she wants 50/50 equity split and no share of my pensions).

I replied along the lines of that I didn''t think my any solicitor I appoint could act on our behalf. I did remind her that we do have the Consent Order (bought via wikivorce), and that maybe she should complete the forms - seeing as were in agreement of what''s wanted so that we can submit the forms.

Fingers crossed eh!!

Sounds as if you get on ok enough why don''t you arrange to go to mediation.
Where you can discuss the finances and get a mediation agreement and then get it put onto the Consent Order and all signed off by both parties.
Sounds to me as if you are only a couple of sit downs away from conclusion of this.
All the best

Hi Pete,

I had previously suggested mediation to the ex, and at one stage it looked like it would happen - but then she changed her mind!

I have no idea what is causing her state of flux? Maybe she has an inheritance/lottery win that she doesn''t want to disclose lol!!!

Thanks,


Mike
