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
All your assetts and those of your Ex are taken into account.

I think if you post details of:
Value of FMH (former matrimonial home)
Mortgage outstanding
Value of new home (if I understand your post completly)
Salaries
Pensions
Ages
Children (numbers and ages)

With this info someone here will give you an idea of what might happen or what to do next.

Have you tried the calculator?

Hi thanks for that i cant get the calculator to work theres no control tab.
Our marital home was owned by my wife i was advised by the Halifax when i bought my new home that because i was buying it after i had left my wife the house would not be part of a settlement i take it this was bad advice, many thanks

I hope someone can advise better than I, but it doesnt sound like good advice to me. Maybe the halifax were confused and thought your financials had been agreed.

Are you getting any legal advice? Think you need this sorted quickly. There are a few on here with good knowledge of these things. Keep picking brains. If you get no repsonse re post in case the original is missed.

Hello Tinny no formal advice yet my wife only told me about the divore on sunday i am hopeing that i can agrea to her terms without disclosure she has much more to loose than i do i can still visit my stepkids every other day and am keen not to upest her and risk the visits she allows she owned her home when we married and i would never try and claim any part of it despite whatever work and money i spent on it also i dont want to upset the kids they may not be mine but i could not love them anymore if they were.

Its probably best if you can both agree something between yourselves but just make sure you get it right. Were you married a long time? If you were you may have a claim on her house whcih you have said you dont want to do, admirable sentiment. That may negate (is that a word?) any claim she may have on yours as she may be worried about any claim you could have on hers.

Hopefully you can keep things amicable and remain in contact with your step kids.

I would stress that you should double check everything to make sure you are not selling yourself short.
