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.

Hi,

please could some one advise me. i have been paying my top up mortgage and endowment for the last three years since splitting with my wife and leaving the family home. It was agreed between my wife and i that i would furnish the top and mortgage and endowment (which is in joint names)costing over £300.00 per month and this would be classed as paying child maintenace. foolishly listening to her claims that it would affect her claiming benefits, if we did this properly and via CSA. My wife has now declared after three years (still no divorce only at nisi stage) that no such agreement was made and she is now claiming back pay of CSA for three years.

help. foolish not to get in writing but i thought things could be done amicably. i guess not.

Moral always is pay a SO to W so she can pay the outgoings and therefore one can pove to CSA payments made

When did CSA send a financial questionnaire to you...they can't go back before that date?

In fairness to your W if she is getting benefits it will be out of her hands

CSA is not about children sadly it is largely there for Govt to get back state benefits!!!
