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.

I own a percentage of my mums home along with my brothers. I cannot force her to sell, nor would I be able to upon her death if the others do not agree. Will this count towards the pot? Or will it be classed as an unreliable asset?

If you own a proportion of the house it is an asset and it can and will be counted as a marital asset. Why would it not? Your ex could get a larger share of other assets or she could have an interest attached to the property for if and when the property is sold.
