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.

Me and my partner(female) have agreed to split up. She has seen her solicitor and has agreed to give me the house. I still owe thousands on the house and do not mind taking over the payments luckily i will still be able to afford(checked this out). We have one child 12 years old and he will live with mum but i will see him 3/4 times a week (yipppeeee)
What happens next as i need to take her name of the mortgage and deeds?

Big thank you if any one helps me...

Cheers
Mark.

I am hoping this will be quick and not too expensive....

Cheers
Keith.

OK, I would just go to your mortgage company and tell them what you want done. As long as your ex is in agreement and will sign on the dotted line, it should be fine.

Yeah the mortgage company should be able to sort it all for you. If they can''t, a conveyancing solicitor can do it, the charge should be small because it''s all simple and amicable. It will only get expensive if your ex refuses to put her scrawl on the dotted line.
