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.

The calculator will only give an approximate idea of any likely settlement/maintenance.
child maintenance is payable up until children leave full time education (A levels) which could be up to 19 and is a fixed percentage of the NRPs(non resident parent)income.

Hi the calculator isn''t brilliant.I had various answers from it.I''m not an expert but think your husband is wrong on the assumption that maintenance only applies if children are involved.It seems to be calculated on a lot more than that.
