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 help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Anyone got any tips on legal aide. My divorce becoming very difficult,seems to be going all the way to a final hearing. Stbx seems to have lost a fortune in income and capital in the last year, also remorgaged some property of ours , without my knowledge. Money disappearing rapidly, my own income about 11,000. Am considering moving to legal aide firm to try and cope with this blooming nightmare.:(

You need advice asap -it may be a case for an injunction under s 37 MCA 1973 if H is trying to deplete assets / income

thank you, role on monday, it is a long job sorting this out. To say the man declared his love for me, and it would never fail, i think his sort of love stinks.
