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.

Does it go in the pot??

My x2b and i seperated January 06, we both stayed in the marital home until he moved out September 06.
He was made redundant from a job May 06 and recieved a nice redundancy package. I was wondering whether this would go in the "pot" or because we were separated at the time, he keeps it all. (Married 7 years)
Reason that I ask, is not to take his money but to use as a barganing tool, if need be.

It would certainly go towards his 'needs' (housing) etc being met. I thought the 'rule' was if it's in existance when you fill in a form E (financial disclosure) then that will need to show? Despite whether or not you make a claim against it.
