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.

Err you should disclose you are a potential beneficiary of the trust, it may turn out to make no difference but it is part of full frank and honest disclosure.

Potential future inheritance must be disclosed yes, and if your a beneficiary to a trust, chances are neither will make much difference but you still have to disclose them.

Thanks Dukey.

I dont know what my mum owns so potential inheritance will be iffy? I am not sure she would tell me if i asked? Should i value her property? All seems a bit OTT as she is in great health?

Re the gift trust, Will take it to my sol for an update.

Thanks for the help.

Absolutely not you don`t ask your mam anything, the answer is you don`t know, only a judge can request any information from your mam, even then she can refuse, as i would actually.

I would answer you don`t know the value of the trust or even if you will benefit if an when...............it sounds like a fishing expedition to me.

I am a "beneficiary in default of appointment" apparently. Last resort should anything appen to the trustees and money is left in the pot I think?
