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.

I''m currently in the FMH while the ex is renting. A little birdie has told me that the ex is looking at purchasing a house although I believe the purchase would be completed by his family so nothing is in his name.

Where does this leave me? My name isn''t on the mortgage or deed of the fmh and the mortgage company have confirmed that they could go ahead and repossess (if the ex should default) with me here and I wouldn''t have any advance notice as I''m not an interested party as far as they are concerned.

I''ll be talking to my solicitor tomorrow but I would appreciate a heads up as to what I''m up against. The stbx has been very underhanded and nasty and I''m worried that he will fail to declare this new address during the divorce, plead poverty thus not having to pay me any more than CSA minimum then as soon as the Absolute is through, move on and rub my nose in it.
