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.

If only life was so cut-and-dry... two posts and you're sorted!

Good luck to them both if it's that simple!

Sadley the sum usually looks thus:

Value = denial = no you didn't = not over my dead body = see if I care what your soliciotr thinks = it's mine, you're not having it = Mc2 = chaos = tears = stress = arguements = value = denial = ..... etc; etc...

Until it usually comes back to what was probably 'fair' all along!
