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 new to this , I will be divorcing my wife for adultry , however we have decided to remain in the same house until my youngest child is 18 in about 5 years , then sell the house and split 50/50, will a Consent Order be binding so either party can not decide to contribute toward the mortage if they leave the home.I want to make sure i am protected if she leaves.Hope that makes sense.:huh:

Are you suggesting that if one party leaves they forfeit any rights to the property?
I doubt a court would accept such an order.

Sorry, but that sounds like a really really REALLY bad idea!!!

A lot can change in 5 years. What if you or your wife meets someone new?

the idea would be that if i or she should leave the property that party would have to continue to contribute to the mortgage payments until the youngest child is 18.more of a buisness agreement to protect both parties intreast in the property.I know it might sound strange but even what my wife (at the mo)has done I am willing to stay together for the benifit of our children , they come first, putting them through more trauma in were they live and schools to me is not an option.

So what happens when she invited her new boyfriend to stay over? You''re fine with that? If not, how would you stop her?

No, this kind of arrangement is simply not going to work. If you are going to get divorced then you need to live separately.
