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.

I just wanted to send you my best wishes; I know the feeling when something so awful happens you can't see past it. It doesn't really help to be told things will eventually get better but they will and for your daughters sake you have to grit your teeth and get through this. In years to come she will be very proud that her mother managed to cope with such a difficult time and the only person who will have failed her will be her father for letting this happen to you both.

Be strong, you're a woman and a mother and we can cope with anything if we have to. I don't know how to do these little icon things, so I'll just have to tell you I'm sending you a metaphorical hug over the internet. Best wishes to you.

And here is a million more cyber hugs to take with you jelly (((((((hug))))))). Take a depth breath, calm yourself and go with your head held high.

You are not a failure. You are a woman dealing with one of the most difficult times you will ever have to face, and I admire you for doing that instead of sticking your head in the sand. Don't worry about what other people think (I think people are more sympathetic and understanding than we realise really), just stay as strong as you can for you and your daughter.

Will be thinking of you this afternoon.
