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.

Hi -

I have been here for about five years and have been married for over two years. Unfortunately, the marriage is not working out and I am looking for any information about what happens to my Visa status following the actual divorce.

Can anyone help?

It's my second FLR (M), which are for two years. We were on the verge of applying to the indefinite leave to remain. So it's a marriage visa.

I think you need to get advice from immigration solicitor as you have lived there for 5 years you can the ILR but after marrige visa if documents were not singed by your husband I do not think you can get it. Anyway it's a questiom for immigration solicitor
good luck

Since you are at your second visa, the 3th application won't be for a spouse visa but for uk citizenship.

Do you have a child lieving with you?

Really? I thought I would need to be still in the marriage for that to apply. I don't have any children, so it's just me.

Does this change my status?

No. the question about the children opens oter options.
Any way, you need to apply for the visa only 3 month before your current visa espires.
