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.

well my first mediation appointment with ex was yesterday and surprise surprise he cancelled it on the morning!

Would have been more shocked if he hadn''t!!

What is he hoping to achieve? It was his solicitor who instigated it and told me she expected my full co operation......

Ummm... just down right awkward I reckon!! Perhaps its time to lodge Form A at the court at least this will set a timetable and force disclosure.

Exactly the same thing happened to me. Her solicitor arranged the mediation: I went along for the initial assessment with 100% commitment to giving it a go. Weeks later she went for hers and I was then told that ''mediation was not suitable''. After chasing the mediators for clarification it turned out she had refused to mediate.
Felt that her solicitor was just ''ticking the box'' to say they had instigated maediation... I was hoping her refusal to try this tried & rested route to resolve matters would count against her in the later court proceedings: it wasn''t even mentioned though....

and me! ex demanded it, went for the initial individual meeting, then to the joint one and I was sat there like a wally.

It cost me £75.00. further down the line we had to split a cost for something so I instructed my sol to send the money minus the £75 with a note explaining.

Also at FH he again demanded mediation at which point we refused and reminded him why.

I made sure that it was mentioned by my barrister at FH. Nothing was said but I do hope that it was another rotten seed planted in the Judges mind.

Oh and although in my mediation I was so cool. When I got outside I threw up and almost passed out and was really light headed. I was later told that I suffered a panic attack.

And..... Ex has just cancelled our second attempt at mediation appointment.

Told mediator that he is doing it on purpose, she said he had given a legitimate reason and would be given one more appointment.

I am seeing a solicitor free half hour session wednesday, I''ve had enough now.

Ex is stalling for a reason now.
