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.

But why, what's the reasoning behind it?

It's my intention we cut things 50/50. My issue is her frustrating the sale may put off a buyer at the exchange/completion stage (we're doing both at the same day) and I may not get such favourable market conditions again for some time.

Why what? Why is the ex-wife blocking? I can't read intentions but it's probably because I had paid for mortgage + utilities because I'd thought the quid pro quo would be an expedient sale, so she had become comfortable? Now that I've cancelled everything, I'm hoping it will 'nudge' her to make a more rational choice.

Should become interesting with No children to hide behind, then that would become very tricky.

Once I stopped paying for everything and let her know she'd have to contribute more, she now wants to leave. So, it seems we will be completing in 10 days. The letter worked! (I hope).

Fingers crossed with me it's a waiting game children involved and yes x is using them! Well done.
