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 have been seperated from my wife for nearly 3.5 years. We have two children over 18 who are not in full time education. The eldest does not live at home. the youngest is unemployed and gets jobseekers allowance. My wife works part time and lives with my youngest in the privately rented house we shared for over 20 years.
I have a Prison Service medical pension, which is my main income, and just about pays my rent and council tax a month. I work as a jobbing actor from time to time, but do not make enough to live on from this alone.
Is my wife entitled to any of my medical pension when we divorce?

Hi Jez,
Sorry to confirm,what you maybe already know,but yes pensions are shared,my sol is going after half of my stbx,and his is going after half of mine.
That''s fine cos his is worth far more than mine.

Take care
Luv and cwtchs
