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.

.....we go to mediation to sort finances, but can''t agree?

Will it then definitely go to court?

Who applies and what are the indications for costs? (who pays, how much?)

For those who know me there is no money!!!!
Just the house.....

You need to complete a Form A attach the mediation form FM1 and submit to the Court with a cheque for £240.00 (I think, you may need to check on the Court Fee form)

In the meantime it may be wise to compile your documents for form E preparation/completion.

When I started divorce I asked my then solicitor if it really mattered who divorced who? She said doesn''t matter outcome still the same.

Now I''m starting to wonder? If I had petitioned and then now ex has remarried he wouldn''t have been able to claim against me? Surely that wouldn''t include everything? Would that just mean spouse maintenance?

I know it''s silly asking this now as it''s too late, just wanted to settle my mind!!!
(I really am cracking up!!):S:S:S
