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.

I left my wife (no children)two years ago for another woman. I continued to pay the mortage until now and have also spilt from the other woman and i am now trying to get myself a place to live.
where do i stand i can no longer afford to pay rent and a mortage without getting heavily into debt.
Can i make my wife sell the property or buy me out?

Many Thanks

This is a very open question and the answer very much depends on the figures.

1. When did you get married and how long did you live together before that?
2. Your respective ages
3. Number and ages of any children, and how many nights they spend with each of you
4. Your respective incomes including any benefits
5. Your respective pensions
6. Any other assets such as savings, shares, cars etc
7. Any debts or liabilities, whose name they are in, what they were for. Eg credit cards, loans etc.
