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 everyone!
My FH is next week and I''m representing myself. I was let down again by an incompetent solicitor so decided to do it on my own. My daughter would like to be a witness and I’m not sure if I have to complete a special form or something similar in case she’ll be coming with me to be cross examined.
Thank you

You need permission of court before a witness is introduced and the other side can object, very few cases have witnesses.

I doubt very much the court will allow it, why do you think it would help?.

I thought 2 people explaining would be better than one.
