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.

Don''t know where to begin with this.

My husband bought many buy to let properties over the years. I know he got many of these at cheaper than the then going rates.

We recently sold a house which bought us a much smaller property with no mortgage and he paid off approx £75,000 of debts (he maintains he accrued trying to keep the family).

I have had suspicions he has done a bit of on-line gambling and ?hedge betting over the years and he involved my son in an extremely expensive sport which took them away most weekends for years.

He doesn''t pay a wage into the joint account though I am expected to, I don''t know exactly what he makes in the wage or on the properties that are owned. He claims that due to the property downturn that he is making no money on these and some are costing him. He also claims that some of the banks are wanting properties sold as toxic debts.

Any time I ask for clarity in monies he said he would do a spread sheet but this doesn''t materialise and when I push I get some vague figures.

Short of hiring a forensic accountant...what else can I do?
