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 wasn''t given a choice (as such) my sol sent me my final bill (well, we thought it was a ''final bill''!) and she enclosed a business card for the partner in the practice that deals with conveyancing and bills with a will questionnaire.
It took me a while of mulling but it''s in place now.

I don''t know, maybe the helpline would know if the service would be suitable for your situation.

Enough Already,I don''t think what you are suggesting need to be too complex.A Will says who you want to inherit not disinherit.I can''t see how ex wife would have a claim unless she is she is getting Life time maintenance or there is something else in place that means she must inherit?
I made a will after my Divorce to make sure family I don''t want to inherit won''t.I didn''t have to make any reference to them in the will,they just weren''t mentioned.I used a local solicitor who didn''t question my wishes but I must say I don''t have children ,don''t know if that would have made a difference.
The importance of having a Will was brought home to me today when I was house hunting.I went along to view a house which was an Executors sale and ,sadly,it was a young man who had died and left the house to his best friend.Without a Will she wouldn''t have inherited anything.
