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.

What is in their proposed directions? It may be a standard draft order - for valuations of e.g. Property and pensions, production of details of suitable properties, a date for answering questions and the requirement to make an offer for FDR.

This is done to assist the judge. It is usual for the order to be drawn up by the solicitor if only one of you is represented.

If there's anything in there you don't agree with you can object. The judge will decide the final wording and can strike things out or add stuff.

They want me to write a statement regarding the violence I lived with so ex can comment. He’s been convicted of this and an ongoing restraining order is in place to protect me, they also want me to do a statementof what I brought to the marriage, I’ve already provided this in the form of chaps transfers from the sale of my home in Ireland. I just cannot write a statement on the domestic violence I’ve already done this for the police. I’ve provided the proof of this. The man is claiming I brought nothing to t marriage yet there is a paper trail in the joint account. He’s also claiming he was not violent towards me, yet I provided t conviction paperwork and restraining order.

Have you already had the first hearing?

Or are they suggesting it is adjourned to another date?
