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.

my ex has told me his solicitor said he can claim any money left to me by my parents when they die even after we have divorce which hopefully should be soon and i hope my parents last a few more years yet

I think your ex has misunderstood. Potential inheritances are only relevant when they are imminent. Inheritances aren't certain, wills can be changed, testators outlive beneficiaries and courts can't compel a potential benefactor to disclose.
