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.

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.

During separation my business went bankrupt and so did I. My partner had personally guaranteed the debts in the business same as me.

There was a lot of outstanding debt and I chose to go bankrupt, but my partner chose to make separate arrangements with creditors.

Now my partner is pushing a CBO and I am concerned that the debt still outstanding my be redistributed as part of this Clean Break order?

So, is it possible for them to ridistribute this debt even though I went bankrupt to avoid it?



we have included some "additional information" which basically says that one chose bankruptcy and one choose agreements with creditors and that we agreed not to redistribute the debt as part of the divorce.
