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.

complex position. wife left following affair. we have joint custody . I have 3 days a week ex wife has 4. Ex and new partner moved in to our old home. New partner has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer so they married last week. I took out Petition, Decree Absolute granted last week but no financial settlement made.

Had made an offer to settle-how does re marriage affect it. Can I withdraw original due to change of circs ?

Ex-Wife currently earns approx 40k.
I was made redundant aged 54 last year. Ex wife is approx 50 and is will now get widows pension from new husband within 6 months.

I am living in rented, have limited income and sol says i have to equalise pensions..is this a goiod idea ? Wife will add to her smaller fund and gains extra income from new husbands pension pot before and after retirement.

Really confused.

Welcome to wiki.

I dont know the answer but was wondering. Is your ex already receiving her new partner pension?

Don''t know for sure but I''m fairly certain you can withdraw whatever is on the table with valid reason. Your ex will be receiving greater income very shortly; she has also remarried which is role number one of things not to do whilst settling finances.
Whilst in negotiation with my ex over assets, our youngest child died. He took his original offer off the table within a week of our sons funeral. Even my sol commented that I now only had the one child to care for.

Thanks for the reply. That must have been so difficult to cope with such major life events all at once. Really appreciate you taking the time to look at my position... and hope your user name is spot on for your current situation.

No- this will happen when she becomes a widow which is expected pretty soon- part of the reason for marriage before settlement I expect.
