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 hoping to get some advice from any one who has been able to claim support for mortgage interest,my current mortgage is on interest only and being payed by other half. For me to keep the house he is not willing to pay off the outstanding amount.i am currently claiming ESA and pip and council tax. As part of the pension sharing order my half would enable me repay the amount in 7 years or if nessary move when I'm back to good health. I understand that this is repayable which I can put aside each month to pay the DWP back . My current lender isn't willing to surport me but surely there would be someone else who will. The house is worth £350,000 and the outstanding amount is £68,000.

I'm in a similar situation my x is a sitting tenant and used the situation of the world (Pandemic) as an excuse not to pay the interest only. It has come a time she has to pay so November will become very interesting as I will not pay as court order she has to. As I have expenses away from the house and not living there why should I pay if not getting any of the benefits just for her to hide behind the children.
