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 have received a ''Consent Order'' from my husbands solicitor. It mirrors the clean bread consent order that is an example on this site with one exception. Where it states ''Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 s23 (1) (a) or b'' it stops and does not include ''section 24 or section 28 1(a). The Pension act or the Welfare Reform & pensions Act 1999''.Does it matter if this is missed out as the previous paragraph does state ''full and final satisfaction of all claims for income, capital and pension sharing orders''.

Do I ask for this to be added or sign and send back to his solicitor?

You should never sign an order unless a solicitor has explained it first, it''s maybe fine but without reading in its entirety who could say, if you can afford it the wiki solicitors will go through it for £99, take a look under services, respondent services.
