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.

it means you are each allowed to (but do not HAVE to) prepare a short statement.

I don''t know what the specifc issues are but if (for instance) there is a dispute between you about (say) who paid for what then the statement woud be a short summary setting out your version of events.

The statmetn is limited to the specific issues which have been flagged up,and ''narrative'' means you are setting out what you say happened (not going into a lot of details about how you feel that should be interperted or what the outcome should be.
