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 ex wife has listed on her expenses sheet credit card repayments of £60 per month. (But not an actual liability as her expenses form was not a form but a piece of notebook paper with a few expenses on it) I suspect she has ran up huge debts on these cards since our separation. Do these become my debts too? Do these reduce the money in the pot? What effect will it have on my side? Confused. Help.

Hi Robert
all i can tell you is the debts i incurred DURING the marriage have been listed on form E.. the judge asked me to explain them and it will be decided whether incurred for neccessity or extravagance.. it will then be decided whether we both liable. I would imagine as the finances are only looked upon from the last 12 months, anything incurred post seperation would not count unless in support of living costs.
But there is a definite reason why the absolute not applied for before the finances.
Im female with the debt through neccessity when x2b had plenty of money just meanwith it.. but that dosent mean i dont realise that some do run up debt for non other than self indulgence
I would be wary and make sure you have legal help if possible
