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.

Just seriously considering mediation but unsure re financial disclosure
My stbx and I separated in June 2008 and he left the FMH in October 2008- up until that time our income went into a joint account and we just took an equal amount each month for our personal spending.
When it comes to financial disclosure would it be acceptable to just look at the finances since the time that he left as we both know what happened up until then and each have/had access to the bank account, nothing untoward had happened. I have been trying to find out about obtaining statements as I was told financial disclosure had to be for the last 12 months, but as some of these statements have been archived it is going to be costly to obtain them, however the last (I think) 8 months are still on the system so could just be printed off.
Any help greatfully received

For the purposes of mediation, you only need to extend disclosure to what you need. If there is trust and realism there, and you are both happy to proceed with what you have, that is fine. A note about the expense of statments though - you can ask the bank for upto 6 years worth under the Data Protection Act, the standard fee for which is £10.
