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.

Based on an annual income of £10k,having 3 children aged 9,7 and 5,working 16 hours a week and as resident parent what level of child tax credit and Working tax credits could a self employed person expect to receive per month?

The 16 hour Part time work is evening and weekend so no childcare costs,and children have no disabilities or special needs.

One source suggests as much as £1200 per month but is there a way I can corroborate this?

If you go on the HMRC website there is a calculator which will work it out for you. They are generally quite accurate.

Problem is unless you are applying, you can''t phone anyone and ask what the actual amount will be.

Best to use the £6k as its on the ''official'' site.
