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.

Wear whatever you feel most comfortable and confident in - there's no dress code for an.appointment with a sols.

Take a notepad with you and write down.any questions or points you wish to raise. Try to read the guides to Divorce and finances on here first so that you have a better over view of the basics.

I dressed smartly because I wanted to be taken seriously and it gave me confidence.
To be honest it doesn't matter at all, they will be more concerned with writing down what you say than looking at you.
I was a crying mess that first time and they were incredibly kind.
