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.

Also the fact that redundancy is coming means the employment of the higher earning spouse comes to an end and the forms cannot be filled out with weekly/monthly income figures. So it's going to be harder to agree a child maintenance sum when the incomings are questionable.

Perhaps your friend could join Wiki, and post details about their situation so that people here can help?

I've advised that is better, but they don't want to. I'm just hoping I can help as it is confusing with this new wrinkle of redundancy and how that will all work. Just when you think it's all going to get sorted...

You might be better letting the couple themselves sort matters out between them. I've no doubt that you are only trying to help, but you don't know the answers yourself, and could potentially supply your friend with incorrect information which wouldn't help at all.

Agree completely with Sylvia. These things can get messy, and there's no point spoiling a friendship over it. Plus there's always the "ganging up on me" thing.

Ok. Any ideas of sources that I can refer them to so they can look at the facts for this type of situation?

Just here really. Best place for it all. The government's own websites also have a lot of information regarding this process, the operation of the new regional divorce centres and pensions.
