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.

Waiting for Final hearing for financial matter, as Lip, I am wondering should I invest for Direct access QC barrister or non QC barrister. Its a much straightforward case but still lot of arguments.
How much extra QC Barristers charge?
I am going to try Wikivorce as well but just trying to get a rough idea before I ring them.

You need a good barrister with a thorough grounding in family law that you can work well with. Ideally they should come recommended.

The cost will depend on the complexity of the case and how many days the Final Hearing has been listed for. Expect to pay £3-4k a day plus VAT as a minimum. There may be additional costs for conference and other preparation.

Are you Applicant or Respondent? Is the other side represented?
How long have you got before FH? It may be a good idea to book a case assessment via the helpline ASAP to ensure that the right support can be put in place. Tell them you have been referred from the forum.
