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 have been divorced since Dec 06 and my ex has been living in the property.

We are still not financially settled, he has been requested to put the house on the market, but do I have the right without taking it to court, to put timelines on them to get the house sold?

Is there a Court order here ?

If so, what does it say about timescales, etc ? Does it contain the words ' liberty to apply ' ?

Hi, thanks for mssg and no court order in place due to cost of order being too expensive. I was quoted a significant amount to take this to court, which meant that there would be only limited funds left at the end of the case. Any advice?
