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.

If you have a repayment mortgage, you *may* be able to justify asking to be credited with the amount you have actually reduced the outstanding mortgage by - i.e. if the redemption figure on your mortgage was £125,000 when she left, and is now £122,000 then you can reasonably ask that you get credit for the £3,000 you''ve paid off the mortgage. (i.e work out the equity as if the mortgage was still £125,000)

However, the interest element of the mortgage is, in effect,rent for the hosue you''ve been occupying and it would be unreasonable for you to expect her to pay half of this, unless of course you were also proposing that shewas paid 50% of the rent she has paid in the same period.

Not sure you need to actually do anything the housing market is dire anyway. :dry:

Why would you want to delay sale? if you cannot afford the mortgage?

Well, you could just say "no". But the judge has warned you what the consequences of that would be.

thank you on this same issue which u just explained it makes sense but how to l speak to the judge coz he has already said what the order will b can he listen to anything else except wat he wants to happen do l write him a letter or what he has also said its a waste of money to take the case to final hearing but has said I need to find someone to represent me ihis is double standard I think he is the same judge dealing with my other case of contact and does not want to let me see my kids even tho there is no risk identified how can l handle this I don''t have money am a full time student help me anyone
