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.

Hi everyone, I''ve posted on here previously and still in pretty much the same situation. I''m the Petitioner and its been going on for two years, things took a turn for the worse in June when my stbx attacked our 14 year old son - this being one of several incidents, I reported it to police and events suddenly jumped forwards several paces! However police didn''t see it as a crime and nothing was done!! But social services got involved and hence women''s aid did too. Through them I have been put in touch with a great solicitor. My stbx is home every weekend but works away. However for the last two weeks, his company shut down so he''s been at the FMH living there and still has another week to go and I''ve had to move into my parents with the kids (temp) only whilst he''s off!!! He refuses to move out and I''m paying for everything!!! Now he has informed me that he has had an estate agent round and is going to put the house up for sale!!!! I do not give my permission nor have I moved out!!! I''m waiting for legal aid so cannot do anything until that is through - can he do this????

Is the house in joint names? If so he won''t be able to sell without your signature. If he gets an estate agent round knowing that you would not agree to a sale then he is pretty stupid, he''s just going to annoy them when they find a buyer and ask for your signature and you say no.

I would tell him he is welcome to get valuations if helikes but you do not consent to selling the house and you will not sign the necessary documents.

If the house is in his sole name then you should apply to the land registry for home rights ASAP.

In that case your signature will be required to sell. You should simply tell him that you will not agree to a sale. He is wasting his (and the estate agent''s) time.

Thank you for that. I did think that was the case, but just needed some reassurance. Its so awful going through this and to have all of this on top!!!! I am at Decree Nisi stage, and he has also said that he will contest the Absolute if I don''t sell!! One step forward - 3 steps back.... Grrrrrr
