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.

HELP!!!
Hi my partner reached a heads of agreement at the first hearing 4 weeks ago stating that if his wife could not obtain a mortgage in her own name that she would sign the Consent Order that the property would be transfered to him she has now come up with another proposal which is not acceptable to him.
It was black and white as far as he was concerned a or b as she has not signed any consent order and we are due back in court on 24th for the FDR how does he stand with the heads of agreement can he ask the judge to enforce the consent order to be signed or are we just back to square one? funds are rapidly running out with solicitors fees.

Its not easy to answer because we don`t really know what has happened, usually the agreement is taken by one of the solicitors fleshed out and signed and lodged with court (perfected).

If an agreement was made before a judge there is little wiggle room unless both parties consent, so there is a strong chance the judge will hold both to the agreement made before him/her.
