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.

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 Vail, thanks for the snippet, lol

So there doesnt seem to be any "punishment" for flouting the rules? I thought that judges liked to do the telling off bit?

I was before a judge couple years ago following a horrific car crash, and money was put into a trust for my kids as compensation, when the judge asked me what I thought to the amount they got, I said something like" no amount would be enough for the damage it caused them, they are my kids" and he told me off, saying "we are not america, where you can sue for ridiculous sums or for ridiculous things"!!!!!
That was a telling off, and in front of my kids, felt like I was back at school :blush:

Sorry, different situation altogether but, suprised they dont go a bit tougher on deliberate rule breakers.

PS
I dont have a solicitors bill to pay, but a post on here by a solicitor said that some clients bugger off without paying and we started talking about it at work, a colleague said they cant persue you through court for money and I just wondered thats all
:)
