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.

Lots of complicated things! Directions will be given for the 3rd party to file evidence and give position statements. The specifics depend on why the 3rd party is being joined. Whatever else, the 3rd party needs to be an active participant because if he/she simply ignores the process, he/she can be bound by court rulings and lose the benefit of assets which get transferred to another person as part of the divorce proceedings.
