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.

If the marital home is sold and the free proceeds are being held on joint deposit would it count as heritable or movable estate if one of the spouses died before the divorce is finalised?

Depends if there is a will or not.

Moveable property is money, shares and any other property other than heritable property.

Thank you. Probably a silly question but I take it that my share would remain my property and not form part of the estate?
