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.

my divorce was made absolute in June 2006. neither my ex-husband nor I used a solicitor. In the petition to the court, we both agreed that if my ex signed over his share of our only house, no claim would be made in respect of maintenance for our daughter. I am in the process of transfering the title and remortgaging and my ex is now refusing to sign the transfer of title papers, saying he is entitled to a share of the property and wants me to buy him out. House still in joint names currently.
As the divorce is absolute, can he change the terms now? I receive no maintenance or support and our daughter was diagnosed with cancer last year, which is why I'm still trying to sort things out.
I am due to see a solicitor in a couple of days and I feel incredibly stupid.
