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.

Stb ex didn''t attend the first mediation last week, so it looks as if we are off to court. Can the mediator forward any recommendations to the court in the light of what he has obtained from me - and will the ex''s non attendance reflect badly?

It seems as if he thinks it will all go away, if he chooses not to think about it.

In financial matters mediation is without prejudice which means the court will ignore anything either of you say about mediation or whether or not the other attended / refused mediation.

Thanks. So it really relies on a reasonable response to the process - oh well - off to court I guess.
