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.

Welcome to wiki.

Have a couple of questions to ask.

What was suggested at FDR,

how far apart are you?

Have you made a reasonable open offer?

Are you being represented or self repping?

Firstly, sorry to hear you are in this awful situation.

In order for Wiki''s to help you will need to post a lot more details. There is quite a bit involved in preparing for a FH, especially if self repping.

But, what is your situation, do you have children, their ages, lenght of marriage, housing needs for you both, access to children if applicable, health of you both, your earning capacity and your ex/stbx. Assetts you or both of you have, lenght of marriage.....

Am happy to help if poss.

I self repped at FH
