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.

My initial reaction is that you can''t. To transfer the ownership of property there has to be a deed. and that has to be signed by all the owners.

The only way I know would be if joint owners hold property as '' joint tenants '' which in plain English, means that if either joint owner dies, the survivor gets the whole of property by operation of law.

If an owner dies, his personal representatives can carry out a disposition on behalf of the deceased.

Do you have your ex''s cooperation in putting the property into your sole name? If so then see a conveyancing solicitor who can do it very cheaply, maybe around £300-500.

If not then you''ll need a financial order (Consent Order or court order).

The situation is that my father wants to remove my mother from the house deeds at his house as she has been dishonest and cheated him out of many thousands of pounds,and has asked me to find out how to do it.
She will cooperate as we,the family have explained to her that its for the best as she just cannot be trusted.

To be perfectly honest that sounds very sinister.

Er - hang on a bit.

What is the value of her half share ? Let''s say it''s £50,000 and the amount of money she swindled is £10,000. Not very fair to take away all her interest, is it ?

There may be other ways of doing it, like converting your ownership to a tenancy in common, so that in example I gave, you might be entitled to 60% and she the other 40$.

What is more, any solicitor who knew these circumstances would, without doubt, advise your mother to take legal advice before doing anything.
