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.

I have been divorced from the ex for 4 years. I pay her £2k a month.
My daughter(17) lives with her and 2 boys (now 19 & 21)live with me.
I remarried and have a 13 year old step son who lives with me.
My life has improved tremendously and i have also furthered my career.I am very successful and happy.
The ex has just started work part time. She was told 4 years ago to get a job and reduce my payments.
I have received a letter this week from her solicitor asking for more maintenance.My present wife earns less than i pay the ex.
How long do i have to continue payments and can she take me back to court demanding more money?
Will i continue to be penalised for my hard work?
