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, Can anybody help? STBX walked out of family business at the end of last year and has not worked a day since. He has not ''signed on'' to get any benefits and I am therefore left to pay the £1200 per month mortgage plus insurance etc. He has spent about 7 or 8 weeks so far in Spain close to his parents (English) and he probably lives very cheaply. He has savings - I know this for certain. Can he just not pay his half of the mortgage etc. even though he is jointly responsible without any comeback or can I sue him (cheaply DIY) to get some money from him?
Will I get some money back once the divorce is finalised?
