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.

I have been separated from my wife for 4 years and now divorced for 6 months. i live with my Dad while she lives in the house that I own with our 2 children. I always used to have a key to the house which she was okay about until she met a new boyfriend several months ago.He has changed the locks without discussing it with me.Is he allowed to do this?

Welcome to Wikivorce.

How old are the children? Im assuming they are over 18 if they too are joint owners?


It''s your ex and her NP''s home, and they have a right to a private life. Were the children aware that the locks were going to be changed, and if so, did they agree to it?

Or does the op mean, she lives in the house with their two children, that he owns?

If you are divorced, have you not sorted out finances yet?

She has a right to privacy, and even though you own the house, she has a claim to it. Really, you need to get the financial split sorted ASAP.

If you partly own the house or soley own the house you have rights to entry on certain grounds.

Imagine the cenario that you are renting a place, the owners have rights to entry on certain grounds but also you have rights to privacy on certain grounds.

What is the situation? Do you want to establish your rights or is your wife (ex) wanting to deestablish your rights as a joint owner?
