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.

Newbie here, but hoping someone has come across this one before. AT date of seperation we both had debts in our name built up during the marriage, mostly in my name. I went bankrupt a year after the seperation to try and get back on my feet, but now the other side''s solicitor is claiming the debts should be removed from the financial asset/ debt calculation meaning the pension share to my ex would increase by 4 times. I thought that it was a snap shot of the finances on the relevant date that counted.. not where I am at 2 years later!
