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.

Hi, i have been married for 28 years, my husband started his own company 8 years ago and it has been very difficult financially and we have accrued debts because of the company. 5 weeks ago he told me that he was leaving me and all he wanted was the car and the business! do i have any rights to the business? i am registered as company secretary but have my own independant job but i dont see why me and the kids shouldnt benefit from the company now it is in profit when this is why our marrage has broke down.

Get a good solicitor, dont wait for him to do anything, be in the driving seat and speak to them about financial disclosure (form E) at the same time before he hides all the assets.

Best wishes and take care.
