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.

Please could someone tell me what an "APP7" and a "Form FM1" are? I have been referred to the mediation company FMM Ltd., and they state that they issue these forms at the end of mediation or if mediation is unsuitable. Currently I am in the position of wondering whether to accept the offered mediation or not and am wondering what will happen if I don't accept it (the mediator felt that I might not be "ready" for it).

In April the rules changed so that people who wanted court to help have to try or at least be assessed for mediation (MIAM) if this is refused or fails the mediator give you FM1 which is needed before an application can be made to court.
