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.

hi.. i posted on here about trying to go for residency of my kids...

advised by solicitor to try mediation. i have done that but ex says no issues to discuss. she doesnt even know what its supposed to be about so how she knows there are no issues is beyond me..... so i hit a brik wall. ( we havent had a session just called the mediators told them my proposal and they rang ex to say what wanted to do....!!)

so does anyone know what bearing this will have her refusing as I now have to drag the thing and kids through caffcas and courts etc.... been there before and its no nice for kids.... but what else can i do if she isnt willing to mediate.....???

hi angel

In response to your post here, what are the issues that you feel you need mediation on? Is your wife saying that there are no issues because she doesn't want to discuss tham? Or does she actually believe there are no isuues? Are you still in communication with her directly? Can you ask her the question of how she would like to continue, without issue, and without going through mediation?

Or do you just think she is blocking?
