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.

I would imagine that a mediator would be classed as a third person as they will remain in the room with you and can ''monitor'' the communication.

Have you been directed to attend mediation? Do you wish to attend mediation?

Your best bet would be to discuss it with your solicitor or a mediator and see how to proceed.

Mediation may well be deemed inappropriate, although it might be possible to do "shuttle" mediation when the parties are in two separate rooms and the mediator shuttles between them.
