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 it still the matrimonial home?

We are coming up to the two year mark, so I''m starting to look at getting things going on the divorce front (he refused to divorce on any other grounds as he didn''t want to be at fault!).

We have already sorted out the house, I bought him out and we''ve done the transfer of equity etc and he has bought himself a house.

I want to sort out a Clean Break order, but I was playing with the calculator and came a bit unstuck at the property part. Will the house I now own still be considered the matrimonial home?

It''s the former matrimonial home and for settlement purposes the value of any assets in sole or joint names are included in the "pot" for sharing.
