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.

Thanks Maisymoo.

2 bed semi in school catchment would be at cheapest £500k. He is paying mortgage currently, but I would like to take over paying. We are both early forties.

Hi again

You must live in a very expensive area! How will you afford to pay the current mortgage on your current income?

Your sons schooling will be considered but if is completely unaffordable I am not sure a judge would be able to rule that you stay in the FMH.

Everything will be looked at and your ex will produce an array of house details that he thinks will be suitable for you and your son. And I guarantee he will find some even if grotty houses in catchment!
