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.

Thanks for the responses, it is a nightmare situation!

But, does anyone know if I can force a Clean Break through the courts? Will the judge make a decision if neither party can agree?

My family have offered to loan me the money for legal fees - they just want to see me getting my life back together again.

Can anyone answer this question?

The Courts can certainly award a Clean Break, or, to put it technically, dismiss all claims by either party against the other ( except to the extent stated in the order ) .

If your ex will not agree to this, yes, it''s open to you to go to Court, but this does cost money and you may want to get legal advice

(a) to assess the risk of a successful claim ; and (b) whether it is worth spending money to shut out a claim that may never be made and might not succeed if it were.
