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 am the one leaving the home.

I thought I would update here.

I am now divorced. The Absolute came through on June 3rd.

At the moment the Legal Charge and Consent Order are being done by my solicitor. The Legal Charge is so that I do not have to pay Capital Gains Tax when the house is sold. My name is being removed from the mortgage and the house deeds.

My ex husband has asked me to pay for half his legal fees to have my name removed, as it is in my benifit to do so. I did say at the time that I would help towards it, but in hindsight, I am having to pay my own solicitor to act on my behalf so I don't see why I should pay half of his too.

Seeing as he had to pay the Mortgage company a fee, I will contribute half of that fee only.

I think it has all gone quite well.
