What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.
The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.
A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.
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.
Take your pension worth £200,000 in investments and let's say it was cash. We can agree £200,000 of cash is worth £200,000. Now invest that cash in a pension (and we'll ignore expenses). You still have £200,000, but in pension investments. Its true you cannot get your hands on that money now, but it still exists. And why did you put the money in the pension? Not to decrease its value by 75% or noone would invest in pensions. It was to gain valuable tax-benefits given by the Government on pension investments. I say its still worth £200,000.
50% to each party - that will be whatever the house actually sells for and the equity split equally - who could argue with that?!
We provide the UK's lowest cost no-fault divorce service, managed by a well respected firm of solicitors.

This legally binding agreement defines how assets (e.g. properties and pensions) are to be divided.
