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 assume that you previously made an offer to settle.

The counter proposal just means that you Ex does not accept your exact offer - and so are sending you what they consider to be a fair offer.

So once you receive this you can compare your offer with your ex's counter offer and see how far apart they are.

Then you decide what steps to take next:

- accept the counter offer
- continue to negotiate / improve your offer
- find you are unable to negotiate and so head towards court
