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 Again

Just a little more advice required here. My solicitor is saying apply for my Absolute and make a court order !

I am totally confused.

I am also convinced he is living with somebody although he denies it.

Where does this leave me?

Thank you

You haven''t really given enough information. It is usually advisable to get finances sorted before applying for Absolute. Has your solicitor given any reason for applying before?

Hi again, to be honest I do not know if home rights are insistantly invalid once Decree Absolute is granted. I would ring the Land Registry and check.

A judge would often be unprepared to grant the Absolute if there are unresolved financial issues.

matrimonial home rights end on the Absolute when you are no longer married but someones on application home rights can be extended.
