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.

The basic state pension isn't shareable but Home Responsibilities Protection (HRP) is a scheme to help you protect your entitlement to State Pension if you're not paying National Insurance contributions because you don't work, or your earnings are low because you're caring for a child. the second state pension, SERPS, is shareable.

Some judges automatically award a nominal amount of maintenance, say £10/annum, so the children don't suffer if the parent with care falls on hard times in the future. The over all circumstances matter so it's difficult to comment further without knowing the values of all the assets, debts, incomes, pensions etc.
