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.

After my husband left over a year ago ,I have been living on what I can take from the business and £200 per month WTC...then I met my new partner, he had a good job and we agreed that he would move in with me..a couple of days after he moved in with me he was told that the contract where he worked was coming to an end and there were going to be pay offs,just our luck he was one of the first to go..He applied for Jobseekers allowance and I got the WTC raised to £380 per month, the business is running at a loss.
He got a letter back from DWP saying that he wasn't entitled to contribution based JSA as he hadn't paid enough NI contributions, he can't get income based JSA because he is living with me and I work more than 20 hrs per week, is there anything else we can claim as I can't afford to take much from the business...
