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.

Am going to and fro via solicitors trying to agree financial split. I am a detail fan with the intention of reducing area of disagreements for negotiation. My chap keeps going for a vague Simple approach. I want a 50:50 with compensation on my spend on assets. At present am back to situation over a year ago. Do I insist on my approach? Do I change lawyer? FDR last Dec, sent my Statement for FH on his basis not mine,awaiting her Statement, meanwhile she wants FH on market, I can buy
her out with ER .

Not sure what you mean ''spend on assets' .

If you are married it doesn't matter who spent on what or whose name the asset is in.
As they say the lots in the pot.
You will also be charged every time you talk to your solicitor so bills rack up.
Ps you might like to check out his/her on your post as its confusing.
