Read our guide to Divorce Financial Settlements


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?

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.

Hi
My ex and I are in the process of completing a consent order for a clean break. We're both on tight finances so can't afford a solicitor and I wondered if anyone could give me some guidance on the wording to use for the actual clean break order please?

It's a really straightforward one as we have no assets to split and are each just keeping what's ours (pensions etc).

Any help would be massively appreciated.

Thank you!
Erika

I've worked in the law for over 25 years and I wouldn't try to draw up my own consent order. I know enough to actually prepare a document but I also know that there are many pitfalls which only become evident after the fact.

I would suggest you both agree the settlement terms and agree to split the cost of a fixed fee service such as that offered on this site.
