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.

Hi I am a mum of 2 currently going through divorce. I have 2 kids (one of which is with the marital partner) and another child of the family. I''m currently living in the marital home with both my boys and paying half to the mortgage. My partner earns around 50k per year and pays maintainance to one other child. He recently applied for anicillary relief to push the financial matters though quicker. Any reason he would do that? I was hoping he would hold out for a smaller offer to me to buy him out go the marital home. I''m also disabled and claim full dla. Any thoughts on the outcome or what happens next?

He''s probably doing just that - trying to speed things up. It doesn''t mean that you can''t settle before you go to court, or at any time in the process, but it does mean that there is a timetable for the process.

We can''t give you any real advice without a lot more information: your ages, your incomes, value of assets and savings, children and their ages, pensions etc.

Best wishes,
