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 was divorced in 2005. We still have a property in joint names and no specific agreemnt was reached at the time of divorce. My ex still lives at the property. I have moved out of the property,but have continued to pay the mortgage. Our children are all over 22 years and areat the university.
How can I draw up a legal binding agreement that when the children complete their education we must sell the house?

Keep all evidence of what you pay to the MH. Its joint owned so you are entitled to 50/50 division. Your reasonableness of putting the kids first and maintaing the mortgage payments will favour you well, if ur in England/Wales. In Scotland all finances have to be sorted before div granted.
Do hope ur not in Scotland!
