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.

Disclosing assets

I am discussing divorce after discovering my wife was having an affair.

In terms of disclosing assets am I correct that the courts will ask for 12 months bank statements?

If my wife has suspicion I have hidden assets can she request statements for a longer period?

And if I don't disclose an account that she is unaware of and has had no activity in or out for several years can she find it, and how?

I know there is a commercial link removed by moderator website for tracing dormant and lost accounts, but are there any other means to discover if all links have been cut for twelve months (she doesn't have statements or knowledge of other account, I assume she can look at tax returns for mention of any interest though?).
