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.

Yes, indeed. It's depends on the job and how long you've worked in the NHS. I did a stint in psychiatry (working I mean, not as a patient!) and as a Mental Health Officer my normal retirement age would have been 50. Those who started employment later had different conditions and their normal retirement would be later.

In many jobs you may take early retirement but, of course, the income you receive will be less. At the moment the minimum age is 50 but that is going to rise to 55 in 2010.
