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 tell me what the criteria is to be accepted for a "pro bono" barrister for my FDR hearing.


Thank you

You need to be referred to a barrister or solicitor through the barprobono unit by the CAB, a solicitor or an authorised advice agency. There has to be at least 3 weeks notice.

A referral is subject to various criteria such as not being eligible for public funding and subject to acceptance by a solicitor/barrister. If your case is not accepted you won''t receive any assistance.

On the grounds that the service is free it is bound to be very popular and those that provide it can accept or reject cases therefore only the most needy cases will receive attention.
