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.

There''s information about the mortgage rescue scheme here .

That page also details some of the criteria you need to meet namely -
To be eligible for the scheme your household must include someone in ''priority need''. This could be:
a pregnant woman
someone with dependent children
someone who is vulnerable because of old age or a physical or mental impairment
You’ll also need to meet the following criteria:
your household earns less than £60,000 a year
you don’t own a second home, including a home abroad
the value of your mortgage (and any loans taken out against your home) is less than 120 per cent of the value of your home
the value of your home isn’t higher than certain levels set for each region – ask your council about the level for your area
When you apply for the scheme, your local housing authority will talk you through some other criteria that you’ll need to meet.

Er, you should not be looking to make anything like this "work" for a separated couple. The point of being separated is that you have separate finances. Owning/renting a house jointly is a bad idea.
