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.

Could anyone tell me if a Direct Access Barrister when representing you, has to comply with the Human Rights Act. I have read "In the UK, human rights are protected by the Human Rights Act 1998. Only public authorities must follow the Human Rights Act".

I would not consider Direct Access Barristers to be public authorities, so a bit confused.

For context can you expand on how they should follow it?
Usually, it's the court/gov that has to follow it.
