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.

Hi,
I signed a canadian Separation Agreement which I have not been able to honour due to losing my job. I am now in the UK and divorcing through the English courts. If I ask the UK courts to judge on financial matters, will they overrule the Canadian separation agreement, and will that judgement then be enforceable in Canada, or will the original agreement still be valid there?

Thanks

Almost certainly there are, but you won''t mind them on this forum.

Try the Law Society, They should be able to help if anyone can.
