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 consent order rejected, then what?

If a Consent Order is rejected because it is massively in his favour, what happens then?

Can a judge change the Consent Order? Do we need to change it?

Thank you

A judge won't amend the Consent Order, it will returned to the solicitor who submitted, along with a note as to why the consent order has been rejected. You will then have to negotiate the settlement so it meets the legal "fairness", and resubmit an amended consent order.

Alternatively, if you have both received legal advice on the original Consent Order and are in full agreement with the division of assets, then an explanatory note to the Judge (or a short, informal remote hearing to explain ) should be sufficient.

Have you had legal advice on the proposed Consent Order and its' fairness?
