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.

I am about to agree a Clean Break offer, although it will not keep me in the lifestyle that I had during a 30yr marriage, I can survive.

Nothing can be done until our marital home is sold. What should interim payments until that point cover?

He was a high earner during our marriage and since our separation lost his job and has gone freelance but has declared he is earning 80k. I''ve had part time jobs for the last 17yrs and receive 8k.

If that''s the difference in your earnings, there''ll need to be a huge capital disparity on your favour! No, you''re unlikely to have the standard of living you had during the marriage - people rarely do. Have you taken legal advice on the offer? You really ought to.
