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 legal advice on a fair financial settlement?

We offer a consultation with experienced family solicitor for a low fixed fee. You will receive legal advice and a written report outlining your legal position and setting out what a fair settlement would look like based on your individual circumstances.

I put in my figures of house equity 300.000 & savings 5000, but the calculator comes up with £5300 as our total all the time. It says I would be entitled to 70% but this is based on the 5300 & not the 305.000 as it should be.
Whats up with the calculator? :unsure:How can I get it to work properly?

I would guess the calc is interpreting 300.000

as 300 not 300000

try taking the decimal point out!!!

I don't think the calculator accepts commas either..... or for that matter IOUs.

When inputting figures DO NOT USE comma's or periods, example (300,000 NOT OK) (300000 OK)

Also I found that when I first input some figures, because it automatically holds the information it does not always default to any new input.

The only way to clear all figures properly is to clear your history and cookies in Tools/Internet Options

Hope this helps

Aha!

Thanks for that Josh, that might explain how the calculator arrived at a predicted allowance for me of £2 per month!

If I were living in 1608 i wouldn't mind but it does seem a bit low for today's prices.
