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.

Why would you want a Mesher order?

Mesher orders are only usually necessary when there aren''t any other options. They are especially inappropriate when the kids are so young.

Blondie,

If he is self employed then his bank statements may make interesting reading. I would be very surprised if someone who could command an 80k a year salary relatively recently is now only "worth" £5k a year.

Does he have a limited company? If he does, then you would need to ask for company bank statements etc as well as he may be "hiding" cash in there.

If he is keeping his declared income deliberately low but building assets elsewhere then a: these will be part of the marital pot and b: If CM is likely to be low as a consequence, a judge may well be inclined to suggest you have more of the cash pot.
