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.

My wife and I have an amicable divorce in progress but to :Sprotect herself she used a local solicitor to prepare a Consent Order (AKA Clean Break). He seems to be saying he needs to submit it , we were hoping to keep the cost down and submit it ourselves.

Question : Can we submit the order he has created

Yes, you can submit the order but I would guess that the bulk of the work is done and is and is to be paid for. Allowing the solicitor to send another couple of letters and the court fee of £45 is not going to break the bank and you will know that the matter is being dealt with properly.
