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.

Any positive advice for speeding up the process?

Does anyone have positive advice to help speed up the process of financial settlement when the other side is using every stalling tactic in the book? I am beginning to wonder who my solicitor is actually working for. Getting to the point of throwing in the towel as money is just flowing out at a great rate, court dates ignored and no progress being made - can''t believe this is normal.

Hi, during the First hearing a court order was issued for the FMH to have a joint value by March 13th- as yet not done. Ex wants to be present, due to work committments changing dates etc, you name it, keeps being pushed back. Just general delaying tactics which is racking up legal fees.
