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.


Does he have any claim on the house?

My husband and I are in the process of separating after I discovered yet another episode of infidelity. He is still in the family home and will be moving out at the end of the month. I plan to start divorce proceedings as soon as is practical. My main concern is over what happens with regard to the house. I bought the house (with a mortgage) before we got married. He is not and never has been named on the mortgage. He did not contribute towards the deposit. We have been married for just under 5 years. There is very little equity in the house. Neither of us have any other assets.

Does he have any kind of claim on the house when we divorce?

Realistically? Probably not, but that''s down to the low value as much as anything else. If it''s not worth much, it''s not worth arguing about.

Thanks. I think the equity is about 5k give or take a little.
