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.

Is there any scource that us laymen can access - in finding results of Solicitors case wins???

(Not the case names and detail) Just the hard facts of their percentages at winning cases.

My ex's sols have a local reputation of being 'aggresive'.

And I'm wondering what my odds are in favour of winning?

Sera. I think divorce is private in this country. I should imagine that the win rates are 2. What I do is look at the paperwork in the office. Is it on the desk? Is it all over the floor? Is it piled on everything? Dunno if this makes a dif but Colins ex's solicitor had a typing que about 6 foot long. He was crap BTW. My sol is a women. She is super slick and so efficiant it puts me to shame. I think only women should be solicitors. Or only the great and the good people should have women solicitors. Ha ha. Women have this mean streak that blokes just dont have. I love women sols. Now I am banging on again. Enough. Chris.

Have meeting on Friday.... with a woman! :woohoo:

Will look at her desk, papers, runs in tights, dirt under fingernails etc.

Funny thing: At court yesterday, this Sol walks in with these lacey, (spider-webby) black 'party' tights on... she leaves paperwork, then crosses road to Cafe (where I'm already sat having cappacino), and I say "nice tights"... she smiles, only later did I face her as my ex's SOL!

:laugh:

Had consultation with sol (£80). Usual costs £140.00 she says to await what the court order me to provide, and then if I instruct them, I'll have to see a Barrister, (no quote for representation at court). From experience, i know that'd run into thousands.

However, she understands why I wish to defend the non-mol / conduct order.

Have to await the outcome of what the court orders.

:laugh:Should have asked her for legal advice.lol. Nice tights for a call girl not a solicitor darling.

On saying that I trailed the shops with panic about what to wear for my hearing only for him to say I looked like a fat dyke these days. Nice one run fat boy run.

(no approval of my crazy new haircut with 4 colours added then few weeks after we split up)

Then he did look like he had been eating all the pies as well. Suit to tight around his little 5ft belly - so pot and kettle comes to mind.:ohmy:Still didnt give him the satisfaction of spitting back at him didnt speak one word.

In the pub later and in he comes and scuttles out when he sees me sitting in one of the boothes with friends.

Oh my run fat boy run. ROFL have you seen that film if you want a laugh its great.:laugh:
