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 there everyone - I received some fantastic advice before from Atilladahun which actually gave me the courage to tackle my first solicitor advice session, which went really well. I am now positive that I am doing the right thing and have a solicitor who is knowledgable and will look after me.
My next biggest stumbling block is the FMH which I would like to buy my X2B out of, raising a re-mortgage of approx £50K. I do not want to get a Mortgage that would tie me in ie penalties for early redemption, as I may wish to move 12-18 months time. I have heard of mortgages designed for those going through this kind of re-mortgage to buy ex partners out and wonder if anyone can give me some advice. If not specifically on this type of mortgage any good offers on at the moment.
Thanks in anticipation.
Kind regards.

Hi Gingerkitty,
I'm afraid I don't know about mortgages for this specific scenario but I am with Nationwide and I was told that I can move my mortgage around with me if I move house rather than having to remortgage.

Thanks Ariesgirl. I have since carried out some research.
The FMH is mortgage free with a loan secured on it (balance approx £17k). I have been told that I need to either consolidate this with a re-mortgage or contact the lender to ascertain if they would consent to a Second Charge on the property (obviously they are First Charge lenders at the moment). I am trying to raise money to buy X2Bs share of the FMH, as yet no figure has been agreed, but want to get all my options ready now so as not to be dilly-dallying when it comes to the finalities!!
My X2B WILL NOT move out from the FMH until he has his money. Taking advice from Attilladahun I would like to have some sort of Mortgage Promise/Offer to tempt him to take and GO. I am finding it a very difficult situation at the moment with him being at the FMH, not least because he seems to be treating the whole thing as a game, and its him that has said he cannot live with me any longer and will be issuing divorce proceedings.
Thanks again anyways for your response.

Gingerkitty,
Check the bestbuys mortgage section in the Sunday papers.....remortgaging to interest only can help for now....staying with the same BS is what all finance companies want.....a search of the full market is what u need to get the best deal poss with no tie ins, but IFA can be expensive......if you want to e-mail me your details I could search the market and point you in a direction.....absolutely free of charge as I resigned as FA this week!

look on www.moneysupermarket.com as it will give you lots of options that you can select a mortgage for you.

most mortgage companies allow you to xfer the mortgage onto a new property as long as the rules on taking the original morgage out still apply (like the ltv % etc)
