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.

Depends on circumstances.

Why do you need maintenance?

How long do you need it for?

Can he afford to pay it?

You need to post more details on your assets, incomes ages etc for someone to help.

If there is a reason why you need it and it would be fair for him to pay it then you might get SM.

You wont just get it because he earns more than you.
