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 the end calculation per month or per year?
is it until the children involved are 18?

I would have expected that the calculator would tell you specifically if the figure was monthly or annually. Even if it doesn't I would have thought that common sense would make it obvious.

As regards child support, I don't think the calculator deals with this, although there is another calculator for child support on he CSA website. If you have to pay child support, you would include that as an expense, which it is, and one that has a prior claim on your income ( which it has ). The calculator will then take that into account in fixing the spousal maintenance to be paid, if any.

Child supports ends of course when the children reach 18 but the calculator won't estimate the duration of spousal maintenance. That depends on a number of variables.
