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.

Tess,

So many things to consider that you need to post more information.

Would the divorce be filed in England and Wales?

How long married?

Any children involved? If so, how many and how old?

Do either or both of you own a property? How much is it worth? Is there any mortgage or loan on the property?

Do either or both of you have any assets over £500?

Do either or both of you have any investments or pensions?

Do either or both of you work? What do you both earn?

Do either or both of you have any debt?

If you post some more information, someone will be able to give you an idea of what kind of settlement would be reasonable.

In essence, 50:50 is the normal starting point, but children, future earnings potential, illness or disability can all have an effect on how the final split may be guessed at.

Why would you want more than 50%, have you just cause to depart from 50/50 split?

Im with Elle.
Why are you wanting to push for more than 50%.
Any effort you have to put in for a small extra gain in equity will be lost to lawyers and overshadowed by the animosity it will create due to a perceived greed on your part.
