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.

Found out this week that public funding for mediation is available and although you may not be entitled to legal aid you may be entitled to public funding for mediation

Public funding does not count capital when considering eligibility for it, only income.

Anyone that is considering mediation, it is also worth realising that there are a lot of mediators out there, some good some not. You need to take great care when choosing a mediator, in the same way you should when choosing a solicitor.

Some mediators, however, do not accept public funding, but please also bear in mind that this does not mean they are no good or greedy some have genuine reasons why this is the case.
