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.

Hello.

Me and my Ex are judicially separated. When she first started all our proceeding she was demanding £5,000 from me because as a small fee from our matrimonial home. I didn''t agree with this so we then went for mediation. After I went to my first session she cancelled mediation, as she then felt there were no financial issues to discuss.

i have since received a letter from her solicitor saying she is now applying for divorce and she wishes to enter into a Clean Break Consent Order.

I have since also received the divorce petition. My problem is that in Part 10 the Financial Order she has ticked all the boxes in the section?

I don''t understand why she has done this, when she wants to have a Clean Break? is this normal? Also I have not received nothing about a clean break? Is she trying to con me??

It is usual to tick all the boxes to keep all the options open. It doesn''t mean your wife will pursue them all.

But why would she apply for a financial order when she wants a Clean Break?

A Clean Break is when there is a court order settling the finances on divorce so that spouses cannot make claims against each other in the future.
