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.

If they are joint tenants, she needs to sever the joint tenancy. This does not need his consent but he needs to be notified. Then she should make a will leaving her assets as she chooses.

Is she well enough to see a solicitor?

Joint tenancy is to do with the house deeds ie who is named ad owner and under what terms. It has nothing to do with who lives in the house or who pays the mortgage. You can check with the land registry if your mother is unsure. Do you know the history of the ownership of the house? Was it ever transferred in whole or part to your brother or does he just pay part of the mortgage?
If he is not on the deeds then your mother can leave the house in her will to anyone. If he is the sole name on the deeds it is his property. If both names are there and there is no deed of trust regarding who owns what proportion then you need to follow the advice above.
