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 have sent back the divorce petition saying I am not going to defend it, but have said I am not willing to pay her costs.

On her prayer there is mention of an Ancillary Relief that she may aplly for with the normal things mentioned, as in pension, maintaince, ect.

Now we have a debt that we took out in joint names before we got married. I have been taken to court over this debt and was wondering do I try to get her half through the Ancillary Relief or do I try normally through the courts?
