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.

Anyone had any dealings with these guys. I''ve got a meeting this coming Friday with a consultant coming out to the house. I''m covering all angles here as I currently pay the full mortgage but nothing else. Think I''d rather pay half the mortgage and CM . So if anyone has had dealings with them what was you experience with them?

I had a persoanl advisor come out and see me when I applied for benefits she was helpful but her major concern was purely to advice about child support.

I do think it is a missed opportunity and she should help you wade through the realms of paperwork you have to get through from other benefit agencies.

She expalined the different ways you can apply for child support such as use the agency or have a court order and expalined it would not affect an benefits I received.

Even though your ex is paying mortgage at some stage its going to have to be recognised as child support or he will build up arrears...what the money is spent on is a different matter

Think you miss read my post. I''m the husband I''ve left the wife but I want to make sure that the wife can''t say I haven''t been paying anything towards the kids since i left. I''m not entitled to any benefits at all so want to make sure I''m doing the right thing for me without any come back from the wife.

Set up a standing Order make sure you state that the payments state they are for child support if you are paying anything to you ex in support set up another one saying spousal support just so its clear to the court you have paid x amount
