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.

Good morning

Last week I was informed that my Ex''s legal aid has been revoked. So it should be, he has been using it like it was a "rent a crowd" service since 2009!!!

Any way,now we have to disclose finances at the beginning of April and 1st hearing 1st week of may,to resolve our finances (asset FMH in my name with 40K equitity,no conbrutions from Ex) one child aged 2, relationship under 6 years, income Me £7k, him benefits, both 33 years old,he''s been housed by council.

I offered him £2K,which he''s solicitor at the him refused and just informed me we are going to court. I then filed with the court, as I did not want to wait any longer for legal aid certificate from he''s side.

I doubt he can fill out the form E by himself... I''m worried this will hinder us finally becoming financially severed.

Any suggestions on how to handle the matter going forward, (we are not civil)?

Hi msbull,

You could make him another offer which would be acceptable to you. With the prospect of dealing with court and all the forms etc your ex may be more amenable. The prospect of it all going away may be more appealing for him now. Otherwise you will have to let the court process run its course and if he isn''t organised then that may take a while. Along the way, you would both be expected to make offers to settle anyway. Good luck.
