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.

Hello, I was divorced in 2016, my ex husband has re-married. We have our FDR (final hearing) coming up very soon. Iv asked for 50/50 split he earns more, and has more matrimonial assets than myself. he has our child 40% of the time. I had to sell my car and rent out my sons bedroom to survive. My lifestyle had a huge decline when we separated yet his has stayed the same/improved. I need to sell my flat (2nd matrimonial property) I'm worried it may affect the outcome at the final hearing I need to sell and rent untill our hearing has been delt with is this a bad idea? There is equity but obviously will be using for a deposit on new home eventually and it's less equity than he has . Many thanks

No reason why you shouldn't if that's what you want to do.

You'll be selling an asset but you'll still have the money that was tied up in it.

If you were to blow the lot on on frivolities that it may be viewed differently.

Is it in your sole name or joint names? He could frustrate any attempt to sell by refusing to agree if it is in joint names or applying for a freezing order.

Im
going through a similar ordeal. Bought my house before the civil partnership which lasted 3 years before we separated. Got FDR coming up and as I’m not happy in the house I put it up for sale. He’s found out and his solicitor is threatening a freezing order unless I agree to hold the money in solicitors holding account which I’m not prepared to do. Am terrified I’ll lose the sale and be stuck here for ages whilst all sorted out. House in my name and he’s now happily settled with his new partner but obviously going for more of my money
