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.

Can anyone help. I’m desperate.In October 2019 a Consent Order was issued which led to me resigning from my position as company director of our family firm as well as employee. . At that point I lost my source of income. I had enough money to last until the family home was sold and my new business got off the ground, which I launched early in 2020. Then the Coronavirus hit. I had no previous years accounts. I have no sales in the pipeline. I am now effectively homeless and on Universal Credit whereas I did have a healthy salary/dividends. And my wife is dragging her hels over the sale of the family home which she still lives in and for which I am running up mortgage arrears. My question is: does anyone know of any scheme for the self-employed that I might be able to apply for? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
