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.

You need to get a Consent Order signed and approved by the court that details your agreement to share the profit from the house.

Then what he does with his share (e.g fritters it away) is his business. You share is safe.

If however you just split the profits by verbal/informal agreement without a Consent Order then you do face the risk that he could waste his share and then come back to claim some of your assets at a later date.
