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.

I got married in St Lucia in 1987, I am assuming that the marriage is legally binding in the U.K. I now want to get a divorce, do I go about it in the normal way I would for a U.K marriage? The other problem I have is with my Marriage certificate, I cant find it, do I need it and if so where do I get a copy. we plan to sort the divorce ourselves with as little involvement as possible from a solicitor. Any advice would be welcome.

Hi there

Once you have obtained your marraige certificate you simply follow the usual steps for divorce - there is no special steps for a ceremony having taken place abroad, and yes, your marraige is legally recognised here.

Robbo, I was married in Barbados in 1993, my divorce has been quite straight forward, you shouldn't have a problem once you have obtained your marriage certificate. Poppie

Hi there,

I realise you asked this question many years ago but I am wondering how you found the divorce process? My partner and his wife have been separated for a number of years and we’re advised by a solicitor that a divorce would need to be granted in St Lucia. We’re all hoping they’ve been badly advised!

Thanks!

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has successfully managed a divorce after marrying in St Lucia. I married in 1993 Gros Islet and now need to get a divorce.

I have contacted every address going, sent two postal orders and have still not received a copy of my marriage certificate. I would love some help as I am at my wits end
