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.

Very true Cookie, but faced with the desperation of wanting to get on with our lives, and also making sure something good comes out of it (ie actually being able to financially survice when i retire) makes you look at all kind of desperate options!

Right.....simple solution here we come!

Well, the simple solution to that is a pension sharing order.

If you are both willing then he could buy off your pension sharing claim with equity. But this is not something a court would do. A court would share the pension, and with good reason, it is the most simple and fair way of doing it.
