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.

how do you work out cash gained during marriage?
BIL marred he had about £25k in his account
he paid for everything, put down £15k deposit on a flat, gave his wife £10k to invest in a property in china (she didn't) paid all bills. he now has about £12k in his account. obviously some of that money he's saved during the time as hes put a lot out. but since hes paid everythin how do you work it out?
thanks

Under Scottish law the money would form part of the pot given the way it was acquired and used . In modern marriages it doesn't matter who contributed what, the pot (including pensions) is shared 'fairly,' usually equally.
