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.
My Husband who wants the Divorce, has now decided it would be best for me if we legally seperate.

He has Drafted a legal Financial Agreement, & his Sol. thinks its excellent....

The Sol I have seen ( once as a Free Consultation, & 2nd time for further advise.

She has emailed me a Paper which she want me to sign.
She has also lisited her costs.£350 for actual Divorce/Seperation.
& between £2,000 - £5,000 for her Fees.



My Husband has come to an agreement with his Sol.that her total costs for eveything, including the Consent Form, Court Paperwork, Financial Agreement Paperwork will be £495 inc....

THEREFORE all my Sol.has to do is read over & discuss with me both Consent Form & Financial Agreement.....

Can any one please advise me?

Can the Wiki Team do this paperwork for me????

& what would be their Cost ?????


Thanks every one

£2-5k is an estimate which would probably be to take instructions, complete a form E and negotiate an agreement. If some of this work is not required, the cost to you would be lower.

In your case I would expect your solicitor to ascertain what your finances are prior to advising you what is a fair settlement.

If that settlement, or something close to it, is in line with the proposed settlement, you can go ahead and enter into the agreement.

However, if your solicitor believes that the settlement is unfair she should advise you of this and you can then decide to renegotiate terms or to go ahead with the settlement which may not be advantageous to you.
