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.

My next course of action is to ask the court to award monies direct from rental money that he recieves from an asset.

There are a number of ways to deal with this, probably the easiest would be an attachment of earnings so the maintenance is paid at source, if this can`t be done for some reason you can apply for a secured provision order which means if its not paid the asset can be sold to capitalise the maintenance.
