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.

Good evening,

One of my friend (Italian) got married in the USA with an American citizen some years ago, she left him and came to the UK 5 years ago.
As she has met someone else in London, she would like to get divorced as soon as possible but she doesn't know where is her husband. She tried to look for him via internet but failed.

She is desperate.Do you know how she can divorce, and how much it costs ?

Have a nice evening

She needs to show that she has made serious efforts to find her husband, but if she really cannot find out an address she can apply to the court for an application to dismiss with service of the petition. I believe this costs about £150 and adds approximatley one month to the procedure.
