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.

my wife and I separated in May. She doesn't work so my income was joint income. How does this previous tax year income affect her imminent claim for Child Tax Credit in this current tax year now that she has no income apart from maintenance payments and possible benefits?

A new claim will have to be made, and as her circumstances have changed, it will be her new income that will be used to calculate the claim.
