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.

Confused - is this a good settlement?

Hi I need some help please.

Been trying to sort out finances for months now but delayed due to x2b not disclosing things!

Married 5 years
4yr old child lives with me.
I stopped working when had child and so not working, hope to get some sort of part time job as soon as i get settled somewhere.
x2b earns 4500-6000+ net a month depending on how much private practice he does( has recently cut down in order to reduce payments to me)

FMH sold =295k equity
x2b pension 136k
endowment 26k ( he started c8 yrs b4 marrage)
He has 17k isa and c30k savings.

He gives me 1k pcm maintenance

he has agreed to give me 200K from FMH and continue maintenance and thats it.

Is it worth my while going to court?

Thanks for any help
