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.

I separated from my wife of 20yrs last year after we grew apart.I left the maritial home in which my wife still resides. We have two children both over eighteen. The maritial home is on a family estate and is owned by her parents. I worked within her family business until the separation. I now live in rented accomadation and work within my family business. So far my wife has been unco-operative. We both have solicitors and have been to mediation sessions the last of which she refused to attend. We are now at the stage of going to court.I have no assets and a very small pension but my family business is worth a considerable amount of money. My question is can my wife make a claim for any inheritance which might be left to me in the future bearing in mind that both my parents are very much alive and hopefully not going to die in the forseeable future????
Any advice will be gratefully received

Your wife will not have a claim against something you do not have (yet)..
