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 Hope 123,
Welcome to Wiki, you will find abundance of friends, advice and information here.
You really need to post so more of your details before anymore advice can be given.

1) where are you living
2) Where is your child living
3) Are you Co-habitating
4) Your income etc
5) Have you exchanged your form E's
6) I presume you have had your first hearing,what issues if any
7) Any pensions etc
8) Debts
9) CSA invovled

I am sure there are more questions to come!

Chin up
