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.

Hi my STBXW is on legal aid. I heard from a friend that if she was to be on legal aid - she/we could get the costs of mediation put through that for free.

Is that true or is it only free for her and then i would have to pay half ?

thanks

Tony

Tony, when I went with my stbx we were assessed individually, so I guess you may have to pay for you but perhaps she won't

Yes, bizarre as it sounds, she will get mediation for free and you will have to pay.
My ex got her mediation free but I had to pay, even though her disposable income was greater than mine and it was acomplete waste of time and money.
