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,
My stbx and I have lived apart for four and a half years, he occasionally gives me money for the kids, but I work and pay 100% of the bills, childcare and mortgage on the property where my kids and I reside. The mortgage/property is solely in my name. I earn approx £2500 pm. My stbx is currently on job seekers but has undeclared income and property abroad - I don''t even know the details. Will the court take these assets into consideration and will I have to pay him maintenance, the mortgage outstanding is still about £190K property valued at £224K Thanks.
