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 my soon to be husband is trying to get money out of me. I do not think morally I should give him anything however I know the law is not always fair so said I would. I was going to get a Clean Break order drawn up by a sol however, my husband now wants me to get it drafted and say that he will have nothing but give him the cash separately. I think this leaves me really exposed am I right? Surely he can come back for more or the judge can order more if he thinks thats not fair?

Don''t do it, this is an order of court and you would be telling porkies that could drop you In the brown stuff and bite you on the behind later on.

The order must be a true reflection of the agreement, you don''t tell a judge one thing then do another, it would be very silly indeed.
