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 a charge on the 6 bedroom house that my ex and I built in 1993. Now that the children have all left home he has put the property on the market at a very inflated price. I connot get leagal aid. What forms do I need to ask the court to force him to lower the asking price. I realise that I will have to get a currant valuation.

What is the approximate value of your share in the property (at a realistic market price)?

The property was valued at 250,000 three years ago. My charge is for 40% minus reasonable leagal fees.

It''s probably a good idea to line up your ducks first. I would get 3 valuations from estate agents. When you have that you can write to him or his solicitor, to ask why he has marketed the house at so much higher than the estimates. I think the next step would depend on his response (or lack thereof).

Have already written and reply was that he didn''t realise valuation was to determine market price!!!

Agree with getting all the ducks lined up. He has wriggled out of many things in the past.

On the day the Consent Order was made he was all ready to go with a re mortgage( even though it was forbidden by the order). The mortgage was approved before Land Reg got the paper work for the charge and increased the debt on the house by £27,000. This only came to light when I received notification that he was trying to re mortgage yet again.
