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.

Claiming CB & TC for one child each has worked out well for me, although my ex probably won't agree as she was getting all when we were together. However she would be unable to deny that we've done it the only fair way considering we look after both children week about on a 50/50 arrangement.

However, if I understand this right, your son wishes to live with you 100% (or at least the majority) of the time, and your other child would stay with you for say 50% of the time, then I believe you would be classed as the Parent With Care as you are looking after them more than 50/50, and would therefore be entitled to claim CB & TC for both children. As far as I see she would also have to pay CSA rates of maintenance, reduced depending on how often the children live with her.
