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.

Hi, can anyone tell me if a child aged 16 doing a "level 2 employed apprenticeship" qualifies for child benefit.
Child currently earns approx £100 per week.

Many thanks

HI JG :)

If your child is in an employer provided apprenticeship, then they wont be eligible for CB - but if it is a course of "approved" training then they would be eligible.

This link from the HMRC website explains -

Child Benefit if your child is in further education or training
