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.

Dear all, where do I begin? here goes....
married for 1 year 9 mths, I have a son 7 yrs old, wife is step-mother she also has joint custody of my son.

We tried to have child together - no luck so had to go the IVF route. Three months ago she finally got pregnant through IVF and out of the blue announced she wanted a divorce. I tried reconsiliation/relate - she wasnt interested. She has made false aligations about me and wants me out of her house (house in her name). My son and I will be moving out of the property soon. We haven't spoken to each other for 8 weeks and live in same house.

I have taken sols advice and phoned mediators for appointments for both of us. Im on incapacity, she is working (30k a year )I dont know how this will work, maybe she wont come to mediation? Any thoughts anyone?

Hi tachico,

My initial thought is that you ought not to move out of the house. Basically, you could be making yourself and your son homeless.
