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 legal advice on a fair financial settlement?

We offer a consultation with experienced family solicitor for a low fixed fee. You will receive legal advice and a written report outlining your legal position and setting out what a fair settlement would look like based on your individual circumstances.

I took all debts solely in my name in our marriage of just under 5 years due to the fact my husband was a discharged bankrupt including a mortgage which I paid the 25% deposit from the sale of my house and numerous credit cards and loan which gave us a lifestyle and helped him build the family business which is now doing very well now we have seperated and he says he can just walk away
I also lost my job on the end of the marriage as I worked with my husband in the family firm and am on jobseekers allowance
He has not supported me in anyway since he left 6 months ago
