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 have had a costs draftsman look at my ex''s bill and he reckons it should be reduced to £38,000 all inclusive from £54,950. He also advises that I submit an offer of £27,000 to show that I am willing to negotiate.

My solicitors have agreed to submit my application as it is urgent - deadline is Friday 6th - even though I have lodged a formal complaint regarding not being informed of possibility of changes in the legal costs from public funding to private fees.

If you want them assessed, the court can do it.

Although only the receiving party can request an assessment. It would be worthwhile making an offer to settle before forcing them down this route as you may be able to rely upon the offer later on.
