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.

can anyone give advice: not sure if this is in the right place?

I split from my ex over 2years ago and due to problems i moved out with the kids it was just easier that way!

He still lives in the house now being trying to get him to sell (not happening) my solicitor said i wasnt able to get legal aid as i work but we managed to put in place a matromonail home right on the deeds/land registry? so he couldnt sell and i end up with nothing. the mortage is soley in his name but all bills like gas/elec phone food clothing xmas ect I paid for.

I havent been back to my solictor due to her wanting a lrg sum of money up front before she will discuss anything further, I recently recieved a letter from a company advising me that my ex is now bankrupt and they want there money!

They keep saying because my name isnt on the mortage Im entitled to nothing and |I have to remove the Mat home rights, and I''m not sure what to do...

Ive tried contacting cab and other but either can''t get through or just get told you work we can''t advise you for free!

thanks in advance

This is complete nonsense. I suspect they are just saying that so that they can get their hands on the money. DO NOT lift your home rights.

If your ex is not prepared top negotiate a settlement out of court, you should apply for Ancillary Relief.

my worry is its that the company involved have already told him to pay there money in 30days which has already been and gone and now they are preparing to take him to court and get a court order to take the house and sell it! they said to me on the phone only yesterday that i would have to go to court and prove my entitlement to my share of the equity and that no Judge would allow me anything as my name is not on the mortage/deeds and I''m getting really worrid!

Ive tried to talk to my ex and he dosent want to know he is just sinking his hoping thing will go away!

Why are they talking to you? I suggest if they phone up again, tell them to speak to your husband about it. His debts are not your problem. YOU do not owe them money. There is NO reason for you to talk to them. They are talking complete rubbish and trying to scare you, in order to throw you off the scent. They clearly want the house sold and for all the money to go to them.

I would suggest you file for Ancillary Relief ASAP. Not next month, not next week!

Yes, make sure to get them to apply to court immediately. Don''t let them do the "lets send a nice letter first" thing. You''ve tried that already and it didn''t work.
