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.

Company cars in a Scottish divorce. Do they count?

I am a freelancer who is classed as self employed but I don't have a company as such. I have a car which is classed as a 'company car' for taxation purposes. But because I am my own employer, I effectively own the car. Is this treated differently in a marital asset split ? Also, I have been asked to provide the value of the car at nearly 2 years ago when I split. Is this just a case of looking up old car books to get the value ?

All the his/her/joint/business assets need to be disclosed. What Car? has a list of current valuations which will suffice initially.
