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 would have thought piece of paper with any questions you want to ask and a pen to write answers would be enough.

Take along I''d incase you do decide to instruct them, makes it easier than having to make a second trip later just to prove who you are - so photo I''d either passport or driving license. And a recent utility bill with your address.

Hi, best of luck today.

What kind of issue are you consulting a solicitor about? I.e. divorce or family law?

Hi,
its about divorce. To get advice about Husbands pension, & to find out exactly what happens if I take it out at 55yr OR should I see if it would be better (if its even possible)to put it in to a Pension plan of my own.

My stomahe is in knots. I feel physically sick. Can#t eat, can''t sleep.Am crying a lot. Even cried at work last night...
BUT trying not to let him see me so weak & pathetic. God here I go again, can hardly see screen coz I''m bubbling yet again.... They were playing all the 70''s & 80''s songs. Each & every one of them made me think of him.

We both agreed at the begining that seen as neither of us move out we have to try & make the most of. Some chance as he''s been giving me the SILENT TREATMENT for most of the time.
Walks out of room when I go in etc.
However since I only work P/T we agreed that I would continue to cook for him, do just about every thing that I would have done before.

Yesterday he came in from work (By the way Mon.& Tues he was more pleasant & even came & sat by me in the garden)I had made the meal & he looked at me & told me that in the future he would prepare his own meals.GOD did that upset me or what? I just said that fine it''ll save me the hassle. He got quite angry with me as he told ME not to lose my temper, which I thought I''d handled it quite well. He storms off out to take the dogs for a walk.
My adult son who is now back living with us, came into the kitchen & asked me what I had said or done to get Dad so angry.Bloody cheek, naturally it was my fault....

Just can''t get motivated to tidy around or do anything.

The fact that there are workmen working both on outside of house & inside does not help either.Its like being in a goldfish bowl. Can''t even lie in bed after 07.30 coz they arrive at 8 on dot....

Well, I know Ive gone on BUT I have to say Ifeel a wee bit better for it. Thanks

Hi,
Fear not, we are not a scary bunch us Lawyers, we are just people who want to help you. We usually ask for ID documentation, one form of photo ID (usually passport) another confirming your residential status (usually a council tax bill).

It is good if you have a list of questions - or a list of information that you would like to find out from us.

Hope it goes well, if I can be of any more assistance, please shout.

Hi ID, thanks for your post.I was pleased to see that you specialise in Armed Forces Pensions etc.

Maybe I should just ask you about all my concerns,ie Husbands Forces Pension.

I have been told that quite a few solicitors have v.little first hand knowledge of the Forces Pension scheme. Therefore I have gathered as much info on the subject to take along with me.


Thanks, & I will no doubt have loads more questions to post to you when I get back!!!!
