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 just wanted to know if anyone has gone down this route and what their experience has been of using a direct access barrister. I've read up on it so am aware of the pro's and con's, but would like to hear what it was like from people who have actually hired one. I have already decided that this is the best option for me but just want to put my mind at ease.
Any guidance on likely cost from FDA through to final hearing would also be helpful. ( I've been quoted £10k - does that sound about right?)

Also, if you can reccommend a DA barrister please PM me.

Thank you!
