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?

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.

So married for 2 1/2 years but lived together for only 8months. For 22 months of marriage wife stayed in Sri Lanka whilst visa was approved. During this time she she financially supported herself. Wife has returned to Sri Lanka with her daughter. She has her own house. During marriage she contributed ZERO!! All expenses from holidays, immigration fees and daily living expenses were paid by me.
All my assets accrued prior to marriage.

My question is what she will be entitled to as a financial settlement ?
