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.

I have a divorce case going for nearly 2 years and received Decree Nisi and can apply for Decree Absolute.

For the finances we tried many ways including and could not reach conclusion. Now there is a court First Appointment scheduled early June, however it could get delayed due to pandemic situation.

The question is, is safe / wise to apply for Decree Absolute so that divorce can be done, then continue with financials afterwards? Note I am financially in stronger position.

Your guidance will be very much appreciated. Thanks

Only thing to be aware of if either of you die after the Absolute but before the finances had been sorted then the survivor wouldn't get a widows/widowers pension.

If you're happy with that apply for Absolute.
