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.

My husband was awarded to pay me £900 maintenance a month on 22nd july, on the 29th july he declared himself bankrupt. He then took me to court for a variation of the order, no variation was given and i was told by the judge to seek advice and talk to the receivers. I have spoken to the receivers and asked if the order was discussed in bankruptcy seeing as i took a letter to court stating my concerns.

I contacted the trustee of the bankruptcy and asked a few questions, they told me that it was discussed and my husband declared it in his outgoings. He is not paying it and as a direct result we have lost our home and are now renting off the housing association.

I have no idea what to do next as I cannot afford legal advice so any form of next steps would be appreciated.
