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.

Another post...separate issue...just venting out of pure frustration!! I posted a few days ago re concern that my current lender is only offering repayment remortgages (ie. no interst only). Ex was aware and suggested that I "deal with it as he has no money".
After 16 (!!) phonecalls have found a lender that can offer an interest only mortgage for at fixed rate for 2 or 5 years at better rate than current lender. As it is still currently a joint mortgage (tho I have been solely responsible for payments for last 18 months)I
emailed ex to let him know and he refuses to say if he will co-operate or not. when he rang the kids and I asked him he just keep repeating "I refuse to answer your questions right now". (???!) I need to let them know by Monday. Surely me being able to afford payments is better for him? It is almost as if he wants to see me derelict?!
Here''s hoping I win the lottery tonight!

I imagine I''ve missed something obvious, but:-

Why do you want a joint re-mortgage with the person you''re divorcing?
If you can handle the payments, this is your chance to go it alone!

I cant re-mortgage on my salary and cant afford to buy him out. Have 3 children under age of 10.
Until a formal decision is made about house have no choice but to remortgage with him. Stressed to the max re finances.
