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 Googled "divorce mediation Leicester" and it returned eight results on the first page.

That suggests to me that you are panicking.
Calm down. Sometimes I could see my heart beating through my TShirt, not good.

I have no idea though what you should be looking for in a mediator. Maybe try a search for that too. "What makes a good divorce mediator?"

I must say most of my searches lead me straight back to here, though Googling is better than the wiki search, sorry.

I would look at the register of professionals on:

www.ukregisterofmediators.co.uk/

You might take a look at:

www.leicester.co.uk › Legal_Services › mediation (in Charles Street)

and Relate mediation service in Aylestone Road.

www.leicester.co.uk › ... › Counselling_and_Support

Hope this is helpful.

with regards to cost we had to do income and expenditure. As a result x who is on a very high income had to pay £90 per hour and I had to pay £30 an hour. So I definatley think you should keep searching

Thanks, the place I've found charges £60 per hour per person, which is a lot more in my price range.

£2K for 4 x 1hour sessions? How can they justify that?
