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.

Although I am representing myself I have taken legal advice and my solicitor says I need to hand "The Wife''s note" to judge at my first hearing. What should I include in that?

Is there a note from your wife to you that you showed to the solicitor? I think there may be crossed wires somewhere...

No I am the wife! but when I went to see a solicitor for advice she said on the day of the First Hearing I should hand in a sheet with "wifes notes" basically outlining what had happened including mediation, my position, asking for pension sharing etc. Does that help?
