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.

Hi been doing a bit of research on the csa calculator and it always has the disclaimer that these figres are an estimate and may vary due to exceptional circumstances or words to that effect.

What are the exceptionl circumstances they are referring to and how would it affect a calim? I''ve been looking on their website and I haven''t come across an explanation...

Is this the reason that I hear a lot that their calculator is not really to be tusted?

Hi,

Where have you heard the calculator is not to be trusted?

it''s a disclaimer - people can enter detail incorrectly, get the number of nights wrong for overnight stays with the NRP, forget to recognise that the NRP has children in their household that need taking into account, NRP can ask for travel expenses to be taken into account, that kind of thing. I am not aware of it being unreliable - it''s just that it''s only as reliable as the information you put in it! CSA just covering their backs - I suspect their staff get yelled at enough as it is...!

Mainly anecdotally from people saying that what the calculator showed wasn''t what they paid i.e. they paid more.

I''ve not read that on here .................

mumtoboys is right - these other things need to be factored in.

Its a mathematical equation, so not subjective.
