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.

Now that you can take a cash lump sum from any pension at age 50, could a DJ order a pension member to use that lump sum to replace/capitalise spousal maintenance at age 50?

Yes.Or at least, a DJ has the power to capitalise a maintenance order as a quid pro quo for the extinguishment of the SM. Of course, what a Court can do and what it will do in practice are different things.
