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.

Working through separation currently.
Married over 20 years with 3 teenage children in higher/further education.
Husband receives a shares bonus every year, one currently vested. Another 3 outstanding. Are these considered as marital assets?
I gave up job to look after children while husband works full time.

IF the shares bonuses relate to work carried out before the date of separation they should be considered matrimonial property.

A larger share of assets in your favour and/or periodic payments may be appropriate if you are economically disadvantaged because you gave up work to care for children.
