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.

I am the respondent in my divorce. I have had the 1st round of paperwork from my wife's lawyers and I have 7 days to respond to the documents.

I am not looking to contest the divorce, but I want to make sure that I am not leaving myself open or liable and would feel safer with a Solicitor looking it all over.

Does anyone know of a fixed fee service that I can use. The DIY and online solutions only seem to handle the solution if they "run" it.

Hi Ipkiss
Sorry nver heard of a fixed fee sol they will tell you the hourly rate (£100-£160 is quite common) if you and youe x2b can agrea terms fill in forms without your sol theres no reason why £800 or less in total fees in a perfect world anyway
