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.

my new partner left her husband for me in october. he has sent in papers for the divorce and she wants to sell the matrimonial home. she has always paid the mortgage and has continued to pay it. they are both teachers but she earns more. he wants to move his new partner into the matrimonial home. he has said he will pay half the mortgage [300] but my partner is to pay the rest. the questions are 1) should my partner be paying anything? 2) if she refuses to pay what will happen? 3) if her ex2b's new partner moves in does she has any rights? 4) what happens if the house needs to be sold? thanking you in advance

Maybe i am looking at it too simplisticly but i suppose if your new partner wants half the profit when it is sold she should carry on paying her half of the mortgage,as for his new partner being entitled to any thing these things seem to me to get very complicated legaly.
Could his new partner or himself re-mortgage and buy your partner out ?

thanks for this. the problem is that my partner has been paying all of the mortgage - not just her half - for the past 15 years!

Similar thing with me and my ex but because of the length of the relationship the DJ said that her contribution was equal even if it wasn't even in financial terms, this might not apply as thereticaly she didnt earn as much because we had children.
