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.

If he is paying all the of the mortgage and cm he is already paying spousal maintenance.

Are you saying if he stops paying this would you be able to claim MPS then I would think yes because he has proved he is able to prove support in the two years since you separated.

Whether he would be expected to pay spousal maintenanace once the finances are sorted would depend upon lots of different factors.
