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.

Why would you not give the solicitor a copy of the Consent Order if they are doing the transfer of equity as they will need to see what it is that is ordered.

We, both my ex and I have not complied with the dates in the order so I do not want to complicate matters further. So I want to know what the options are - and to see whether for former married partners a consent form is required before the conveyansing can proceed.

Well I would have thought that as long as you both agree not to make a fuss about not complying with the dates on the Consent Order that neither of you have a problem, unless one party has already applied into court for an enforcement perhaps with a penal notice attached.

If you are happy for the conveyance to go ahead I really cannot see why there should be a problem and you just need to get on without further delay to finalise matters.

I don''t think it is a solicitors job to tell either of you to start throwing bombs and threats at the other especially if you both haven''t complied with the dates on the order.
