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.

Cookie, thank you, that is the case I was thinking about. Am unsure as to whether the judges decision conveys materially different principles than this case or not.

The principles involved (as I understand it) concern what is the ''fair and just'' percentage split of the increase in value. the determination was based on the parties contribution post separation. This is distinct from both parties having some claim on the profit, which was not at issue in that case or in this case.

My guess would be that those principles would apply here given the length of time elapsed between divorce and now, but I am no expert on this particular issue....
