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.

Ex did not turn up, but sent his solicitor, as he is "out of the country" and will not be back until the end of the month.

Judge didn''t seem to bother that he wasn''t there.

I was made to look a complete pr*t by his solicitor and then told by the judge i must communicate and negotiate with other party otherwise they would decide split.

Strange ........ I am the applicant...I put the case in court because the ex will not communicate or negotiate..

Anyway i have to say, it turned out far better that ex wasn''t there. I had a good chat with his new solicitor who has been extremely frosty and hostile towards me, told her I am more than willing to negotiate, filled her in on the background to case...

Solicitor believe this or not.... profusely apologised for her behaviour towards me... said we had just got off on the wrong foot....and insisted I call her by her first name. She said i can speak to her anytime. Previously she refused to speak to me at all.... Good or bad, i believe progress has been made in some form...

She believes it can be sorted out of Court!

Somehow I think not. I think ex will return and sack her for speaking to me....Happy days ahead...
