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 everyone,

Could I ask your advice on my current situation. I am divorcing and am still waiting on a Decree Nisi date. I would like to leave the marital home. My wife and I have agreed a financial settlement. Is it possible for the settlement to be transferred before the decree nisi?

Thanks in advance

I seem you haven''t had a reply but as I have just returned from holiday I have an alibi.

The answer to your question is that it is always possible to come to agreement in advance of a divorce.

However, a Court order cannot be made before decree Nisi and cannot take effect until Decree Absolute ( other than than maintenance pending suit ).

Thanks Mike,

I''ve taking legal advice and it seems it is worthwhile waiting for the decree Nisi.
