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 must say I was very unhappy about my SOL his general lack of care, and tardiness beggared belief.


examples.. we agreed to a pension share on our Consent Order but not filing a pension sharing annex,not including the FPR2010 (whatever that is)

Failed to make any explanation to the court about why there was a departure from the principal of equality.....reason obvious I am disabled it was not mentioned.

Failed to notify me I had to attended Court the order was sent to him not to me did he pass that information on to me? No. I was told by stbex I had to go to Court.

I rang him to ask what I was supposed to do give I was not given any notice from my Solicitor he was not there but the receptionist took pity upon me as it was urgent I literally had to go to Court the next day but did not no why. So she put me through to one of the partners in the firm.

I made a point of telling her how unhappy I was and felt badly let down by my Sol. I told her that I was unhappy with the service and felt it was not being managed very well and asked if she would look over my case as everything seemed to be done at the last possible minute,

Anyway I am not paying the bill my stbex is but whatever if is he was not worth it.

The legal ombudsman is now naming and shaming solicitors who''ve had complaints upheld against them - I think this new regime might actually start to make a difference.

Your financial settlement could be flawed! Has anyone checked it for you?
