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.

An independent research organisation - are looking for participants for a telephone survey we are doing for the Solicitors Regulation Authority to explore experiences of finding and using a legal help for divorce, separation, family mediation or contact arrangements for children. Specifically the research will look at the availability, quality and cost of legal support.

The researchers are looking for participants who have needed to or have accessed legal support in the last few years to take part in a telephone survey. Specifically they are interested to hear from people who:

• have used solicitors,

• received informal advice from someone else, or

• received no legal help at all and have represented themselves.

The research will explore:
1. Consumer views about access, cost and quality in receiving family law services

2. The impact of recent changes to legal aid on accessing services (i.e. since introduction of LASPO, 2012)


If you have used or needed to use a solicitor or represented yourself please visit uk.ecorys.com/familylaw to register your details and we will contact you at a convenient time to undertake a short survey.

All information collected through the survey will be kept confidential used to produce a report for the SRA using the aggregate findings rather than any individual responses.
