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.

cohabitation is relevent as it is assumed that your day to day costs will be lower if you are living with someone, as you will only be paying 50% of household bills, council tax etc. However, unless you remarry, they are given only limited weight as the relationship could end at any time and the new partner would have no obligation to provide any support if it did.

A choice to support a new partner or partners children is just that; a lifestyle choice, and those outgoings do not take priority iover responsibilities to spouse /former spouse
