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 x2b is due to retire in the next 2 years which would take him to age 65 whereas I have another 10-15 years to work. Would a financial split be made in his favour due to his imminent retirement? Can anyone advise?

I think it would depend on all the other stuff, such as whether you have children, comparative incomes, pension values, house value, mortgage, etc. You would need to post rather more information in order for anyone to be able to give you a sensible answer.

Hi Sadie

Without giving out too much detail:

No children under 21
Mortgage will be paid up in next couple of years
Incomes are in similar bracket ........ therefore ....
pensions will be of equal value if I am fortunate enough. to be able to keep in my current job for next 10 years.
Comparable savings pots.

Sounds like a 50:50 split to me, though I am not an expert by any means.
