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 can anyone help with the following:
At the time of my separation i sent a letter to my ex stating that i would be contributing to the mortgage on the FMH and to a loan she had.At the time of sending it there were no claim from her for me to pay CSA. It soon became apparent that once my own outgoings were met, along with child support payments that i would not be in a position to continue.
If the stbx sol brings up this letter at the FDR hearing will it have a detrimental effect on me regarding the financial outcome?
Would a judge believe this lettter is relevant in any way?

Thank you

I don''t think so. That was the situation then. This is the situation now. You can''t be expected to pay everything indefinitely. Mortgage contributions can be seen (even by the CSA) as a form of child support.

Even if you had a signed witnessed agreement to this effect it is unenforceable unless it has been written into a court order.

Best wishes,
Sadie
