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.

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

Thanks for your interest. How to explain a draw? Like a salary, a draw is a fixed sum paid monthly to keep bread on the table whilst commission income is building. Unlike a salary, a draw is more like an advance against commisssions yet to be earned. e.g., has to be paid back. Once once the draw is covered, remaining commissions are paid to the salesman. Say a 100k draw, first 100k commissions pay back the "advance", excess commissions then start flowing to the salesman [producer]. [ If you don't make your draw, you eventually get fired rather than paying back what owe the firm]

A commission income can vary widely - 1x to 5x times draw how do courts handle this?
