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.

Need some advice Pls.

We put an offer to buy an house some time in Feb2012.
The sellers told us that they have to complete some court formalities and would take 3 weeks to do so.
We were ok with this .

Now we are in the month of July(appx 6months) and still they want us to wait . My problem is my mortgage time frame is getting over in Aug and I want to buy a house before it end .

Can I take back my offer for the house now. The house is in Scotland - Edinburgh.

Thank you

It depends on the exact wording of the missives but in Scotland it is far more difficult than England to wriggle out of buying a house once the contract has been signed.
