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.

Starting point would be to explain the case to a few local solicitors.

Some may be prepared to wait for some of their fees based upon what the consider the outcome may be.

What is it regarding?

Hi

Some Solicitors are really great, My sister whose a single mum now, when she went through her divorce, her Solicitor did a budget plan with her & she paid something like £30. per week it was a huge help. if she could pay more she would.

Ok it took a fair while for her to pay it off, but it worked well for her. Always worth asking, lots of people out there in the same situation.

Best wishes G

Alternatively you could consider representing yourself with the support of this site. We also have a number of low cost services to support litigants in person. Have a look at the services page or give the helpline a call.
