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.

Sorry to make the glaringly obvious point, but we don't know what figures you fed into the calculator and therefore can't comment.

An 80/20 split of assets is not beyond the bounds of possibility, but in practice such a severe order would rarely be made in the absence of special circumstances, such as a very short marriage, or where the needs of one party were significantly higher than the other.

i have just been on calculator and could not get true split as only accepts up to 99999£ for x2b salary when its more than double that. he has nothing to do with kids 8 and 10 and he still in mh. i have fdr 5th dec so was looking for a rough estimate it gave me 90% of assets which is great.....hope it happens as im pennyless with 2 kids in shared house 120miles from home to get away from him. can anyone reassure me as to courts being fair and not favouring proffessional!! thanks:side:

Your ex2be earns more than 2 million pounds a year? I thought from your previous posts that he was a GP. I know they have had a rise recently, but surely not to that much.

Loobyloo,

The limit of 99999 is for one month's pay.

So unless he does earn over 1.2 million you should be able to use the calc.
