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 am in early stages of separation (in the spare room!)and expect my wife to file for divorce shortly. We began co-habiting 10yrs ago and married in 2001, she has 2 children (15 & 23)from previous relationships and receives regular maintainence for 15yr old.
We have both worked full time during our years together earning similar salaries. I have contributed to a personal pension for 18yrs, she has no pension but has other savings/investments. As there are no dependent children from our marriage does anyone know if my wife has any automatic right to a share of my pension?
We always contibuted equally to the household however I chose to fund a pension as opposed to smoking cigarettes.

Any advice appreciated
