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.

Does anyone know the pros and cons of getting divorced in Scotland vs those in England and whether I could file in either country even though I live in one of them?

Reason for the question is prompted by a comment in another post (that I did not want to hijack) that stated that in Scotland the financial settlement were based on only what was accrued during the marriage and not those before marriage or after separation.
