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.


Is a variation application from the CSA legal?

So would it be for example should my property be worth £100K and the equity was £80K with a £20k mortgage would the 8% be on the asset over the £65K ie (£35K)or for the whole amount less the mortgage amount?
I hate all of this :(
I had never heard about this variation application before!

As much as i''d like to move back in to make this whole thing go away, I want to start my life again with my new partner, this is all due to the fact he hates the fact i divorced him and is very very bitter, I want to pay what i need to pay (not sure how yet) and I want him to start paying what he needs to pay and leave me the hell alone. Why won''t he just let me be happy without using our children??? Argh!
Thank you everyone for your help xxx

Hi again

I totally understand where you are coming from, but also understand the rules the CSA imposes. I know this from the reverse angle. But you do have a potential income from your propety, you can do family members favours for the rest of your life, but you need to now reconsider your own financial outcome:dry:

Get a good rental/lodger to accompany your sister in the propery and you should be a lot closer to meeting the CSA adjustment.

It can be done and I suppose that is the hard thing.

8% is a steep uplift in current economic climate but we just have to live with it.
