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.

Please...I need advice..
had zoom court appointment yesterday....briefly.. im in 70k debt mainly because of ex...(I had better credit score)we sold house with 112k equity....official separation date is 2016 ive been told he wants 45k where he will clear his own personal debts. Ones he's had since 3ish years ago.... I can have the rest of equity...if I do ...once paid debts ive nothing left. We have a family business and I have a small amount of inheritance.
I just feel why should I pay his recent credit card debts..hes not been able to produce much in the way of paperwork cause most money is cash in hand....I was also under domestic abuse and told not to do mediation .. and cause of that its costing a fortune with solicitors..ive had to pay 4k to go into refuge.....and I had to see him in zoom call....im really struggling today...

How's it going?
Life is unfair, any improvement!
Why does he want the 47k and why should you clear it's his debit unless it was a shared Joint bank account.

evening....its so unfair as i left because of me ex 's drinking....and i feel hes coming up smelling of roses where ive been dealt the knocks.
hes always had that figure in his head...not sure why.
i thought splitting the equity first to pay the marital debts in my name (ones we had as how we lived/his businesses) and then share whats left....but it seems his new debts ....ones hes mounted up in HIS NAME via credit cards since we split....but i think its unfair i have to pay towards them. things hes bought for himself.....as we both lived separatley.
