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,
If the company is registered with Companies House you will be able to see details, google Companies House, go to web check and put the company name in. There is no charge for the on screen information and you can print it. Hope that helps, best wishes.

NWTT.

I am sure it''ll all be fine - don''t panic! it all comes out in the wash as they say

In your questionaire (or in coresspondence if proceedigns have not yet been issued) you can ask for further disclosure.

e.g. if you know that the business was originally in her name, ask for details of when it was transferred, what consideration / price was paid for it to be transferred and for docuentary vidence in support.

If you you are not sure of her role, ask - if the buiness is a limed co. or private co. you can ask about her shareholding, her son''s shares and how / when these were aquired and how they were paid for.

She will have to provide bank statemetns so look at waht money is pid to her by the busness. If necessary you can, in your qustionaie, ask for older statements of business accounts.

If the business was simply transferred to her son and he did not pay for it, he may be considered by th court to be holding it on trust for her (in which case, it''s effectively still hers)

You need to be as clear as you can about what specific information you want -

e.g. if she says that the business is her son''s, ask specifically for documentary prioif as to when it was transferred, on what basis, and for what consideration (payment) Ask hat if any on going involvment she has, either as a shareholder, empoyee or on any other basis and ask for documentary evidence in support.
