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.

is this right

the Divorce Calculator seems to work out in my favour but as i have only been married five years i thought i would just go out with what i came in with which wasnt that much. My husband is extremely wealthy and it seems strange that i should be awarded a great amount of money just because he signed a piece of paper. His solicitor has offered less than a quarter of what the calculator shows, so how accurate is it ? By the way he wants out not me, so i didnt marry for money, he wants me to prove it by walking with very little, but i have no means of supporting myself to any standard as i have always just looked after the home and garden for the eight years we have been together, and cannot earn great sums of money.

I believe the calculator is good at crunching numbers but can't take account of individual circumstances. It's a good idea to see a lawyer early and find out where you stand and what your options are.

You might find this of interest.
