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 filed for divorce but the finances haven''t been discussed yet .My STBX is renting a flat so he can have the kids to stay at weekends but he is living with his girlfriend in her house .
Will her income and the fact he has a house to live in make a difference to his claim on the house ?
Thanks

In principle yes, it could well do.

But what is more important is that you are the parent with care. The need of the children for a home means, indirectly, that you will usually have, at the least, the right to live there while the children are still dependent.

Thanks ,
also if an agreement is made in mediation ,however ''unfair '' it seems to one side will the courts reject it or do they OK it as both parties have agreed it?

The courts range of "fairness" in Consent Orders is fairly broad. But yes, they could reject it if it''s too unfair.
