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, I just wondered if any of you were able to share your knowledge on my particular query .. if so I would be grateful ..

I''ve been separated for almost 2 years now and I''m psyching myself up to the next step which will be divorce.

Currently I''m still living in the FMH but it''s up for sale, we have a joint mortgage, I''m just wondering if I revert back to my Maiden Name which I would very much like to then would this affect the joint mortgage at all ? I''m thinking it may just be a case of the building society would probably require copies of relevant certificates as proof, and I will contact them to double check before I go ahead and finalise anything but just trying to do what research I can in readiness.

Thanks to anyone that may know this, and maybe has come across this same query for themselves. Eva X

Shouldn''t affect the mortgage at all - anybody can change their name at any time.

If you''re going down the route of a Deed Poll, then just make sure you send the mortgage company a certified copy as soon as poss.
