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.

Hi,
I've received our mesher type order and under Declaration is the above. Probably over thinking but the house has been a bit neglected and if I don't get it repaired to his liking what's the worst he can do e.g request my equity share be reduced or just refuse to sell

'AND UPON it being agreed that the respondent will pay the full costs of any essential repair or maintenance work required at the family home pending the sale.' Sorry, pasted again. I'm staying in the house with the children until the youngest is 18. Is it unusual to have this in the order? thought it was just presumed. Is it anything to worry about? There is a lot that needs doing e.g damp,needs re-rendering, re-plastering and what if more major work needs doing that isn't covered by insurance? He is giving me an extra 5% (about £27,000) equity for the work and pension differential (£125,000). As I mentioned before, what could he do if I don't do everything to his approval?
