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.

After trying to sell the house for two years and dropping the price considerably, my ex and I accepted an offer. He lives elsewhere. He has just received the contract and is refusing to sign it saying he wants more money and we should put it back on the market as house prices are rising. I am furious as I do all the maintenance, all the viewings etc. is there anything I can do? Please help :(

What does your Consent Order say regarding house price?

Come to that, is there a Consent Order at all ?

I recall something like that happened to me after the breakdown of my first marriage. Snag is, where there are joint owners both must concur in a sale.

How long as the property been on the market ? What interest is there ? How many viewings/offers have you had ? What is the advice of the selling agent ?

Agent says its a good price. My ex agreed to the offer made. We are at the point of exchange of contracts this week and he is now refusing to sign. I''m at my wits end.

No Consent Order means you can''t do anything. If your ex wants more money or simply wants to take the house off the market, then you can''t do anything.

You need to get a divorce and a Consent Order ASAP.
