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.

It''s obviously a minefield and I have not really got a clue where to start. Married for 24 years trying to put together our own financial plan for the Consent Order and my ex has the following pensions: StaKeholder, Company and Local Government. I do of course have some figures that he has passed to me but not going to post them. Is there anyone out there who is able to give me a little free advice? I am going to use the website calculator, but realise that this is not designed some pension schemes, and I have little knowledge of them. Thanks in advance if you can spare time to answer.

Can I ask what you are trying to achieve?

Are you looking for an equal division of the pensions?

Can you confirm that the pensions are going to be looked at in isolation of any other assets?

You can DM me if you want me to comment on the exact figures and background.
Otherwise, post the answers to the above for further guidance.
