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 am British but married to a Romanian and living in Indonesia most of married life. I have a house in UK, which i owned before we were married. We also have properties in Romania, Indonesia and Spain. My husband committed adultery and wants a divorce. If we can get divorced in UK, I understand the courts have no jurisdiction over assets abroad. They also cannot impose orders on my husband as he is not UK citizen nor resident. Could I Petition for a divorce in Romania? Would their courts have more power over my husband, even though he does not live there? Would I have to take out legal cases in each country to resolve disputes over property? He is offering a split on property but it is not 50 50, even though I brought a lot into the marriage. How can I get a valuation on properties in Romania, as I believe he is undervaluing our assets there, as they will be the main part of his share?
