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.

You really need legal advice from a family solicitor PDQ. If you are on a low income you may qualify for legal aid. You will need a solicitor to draft a Consent Order settling the finances anyway.

Minxy, no you shouldn''t attempt a Consent Order yourself - this is something a Solicitor needs to draw up for you.

If you and your stbx are in agreement - this site offers one that can be drawn up for you both to sign (at a very reasonable cost )

The issue becomes if you are not in agreement with each other ..........

Maybe a call to the Wikivorce free helpline will help?
