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.

Going through a separation at the moment. Our joint mortgage was in arrears of some £7000+ (due to unemployment)when my ex left. She said that I could have the house but wanted the name changed to just mine. Mortgage company said I had to pay debt off before they would consider it. So working hard I managed to pay all the arrears off within a year. But they wont change it into my name because I don''t earn enough to take out a remortgage even though I was the one paying the mortgage, as well as all the bills.
My ex now want to declare bankruptcy because of her debts. If we agree on ''Clean Break'' order will the bankruptcy company still be able to touch my house?
Thanks for any help in advance.
