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 am in the early stage of divorce. (sent form D8to court last week) My question is will the government new rules on mediation starting in April affect me, or will they only apply to Divorce proceedings starting after the new rules are in force?

Hi Soozy

Ive just spoken to the Family Policy team at the MoJ, who have confirmed that only those couples filing after April 6th 2011 will be affected.

If you have already filed, then the new policy doesnt apply to you.

Hope this helps
