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 today was my first one and although difficult to sit in same room as my ex I feel we have made progress. Far more progress than letters back & forth between solicitors. My outlook on it was it was free for me so I had nothing to lose. Me & my ex are not amicable & I did let my frustrations show however the mediator kept us on the right route & didn''t allow in appropriate behaviour from either of us. I hope this helps

The same could be said for solicitors costs when one party is claiming legal aid surely. Not sure why mediation should be any different
