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.

Been reading alot of info on here regarding finances, mine have yet to be sorted but absolute was granted to him oct 06.He does have a new woman and she has 3 kids , are these kids yet again going to take priority over his own children , He has stated in a text to his mother he is going to move in with her in the New Year (legal) , she has a council house which she has had for about 14 yrs, so i persume the rent would be very low anyway, so they are ok when it comes to housing, starting to feel like i have had a hefty kick in the teeth for the last 14 yrs, and it don't matter that my children could be looking up at the stars when they go to bed in a park somewhere.

Thx for that Max , but i'm all out of faith me and the children have been homeless twice through the divorce proceedings 1 place i could only describe as a squat, this is why i can't understand why a judge granted him the absolute first.

If he cohabits, is adequately housed and shares living costs it could reduce his need and result in the division of assets being more in your favour. :)

However, there would be a deduction in the child support he pays to allow for the costs of his new partner's children.:(
