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.

"Mr Justice Mostyn, one of the UK''s most revered divorce lawyers, will face his ex-wife in court as the couple settle a dispute over their assets, it was reported."

"One family lawyer said: "Fewer than 10 per cent of disputes over assets go to trial. It''s quite extraordinary. Perhaps when he appreciates the publicity it will attract, it will settle."

What particularly entertains me is the reporting of the standard wording of the Petition. Every adultery Petition says the Petitioner finds it intolerable to live with the Respondent! That ain''t any sort of news!

I think this demonstrates definite progress - no sign of "quickie divorce" .....
The famly lawyer thinks Mostyn didn''t realise there''d be some interest?
Please let there be an appeal.
