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 would like to move out in advance of a divorce being granted and am thinking of buying. I will use savings that I have built up but wonder how this will be viewed in any proceedings, will any mortgage be seen as a liability and could my wife seek to stop me? I recognise that the capital equity will be viewed as joint and will be taken into account in any settlement

You should not do this. You should not move out or buy another property until you have resolved the finances of your marriage finally and formally.
