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....after 2 years of using all of your experiences, questions and responses I am so so close to finalising my own divorce..! Self representing hmmm its been a roller coaster :blink:

I have a question though...my ex has made me an offer I want to accept - I really don''t want to go to court for our final trial (a week today) ...and don''t feel I will gain anything from it...but accepting the offer will give me a whole lease of life!

If I accept the offer and transfer the house to him within the 56 days when does the payment of monies happen?

Do I need to wait for the house to be transferred into his name?

Can I request that 50% of the payment be made within 10 days (as I know he has the cash?) I am wanting to reduce the interest payments on the liabilities so its a reasonable request I feel.

Self representing is really achievable, with the support of all the people using wikivorce...B)

Nothing is set in stone until that order is sealed by court, even if you had the order drafted today it wont be sealed in time before your last hearing, what you could do assuming the order is drafted is attend the hearing and ask the judge to seal it.
