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 am divorcing my husband due to his unreasonable behaviour. He is refusing to leave the matrimonial home until the finances are settled. Th situation is awful.We have 3 children. a relative has offered me enough money to rent a property until our affairs are settled in court. If i leave the matrimonial home with my children, will this affect how the court rules?

Is there any reason why you can't settle the finances between yourselves now? That would then speed things up, but I know that it isn't the easiest thing to sort out!

I don't know what the implications are of you leaving the FMH, but I would err on the side of caution if you can, and stay there.
