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.

Here is an interesting question that is happening to me.

My solicitor thinks my ex's solicitors dont know the rules and now wants to complain to law regulatory body. After having made a complaint to the partner of the law firm but getting a strong rebuttal.

My solicitor thinks, the other solicitor must not send undertakings given to my Ex, to the school without getting the permission of the court. They argue its within their rights and hence they can share with the school.

Without getting into the details. what is the legal position on sharing undertakings given to court to school via a written letter. This letter was sent formally from my ex's lawyers.

My solicitor is incensed and wants to take them to task. I fear this will only antogonise them further, rather than resolve matters.

Any legal minds to unpick this.

Tricky one, and not black and white, depends on the undertaking and content, how it came about ect.

All i would say is pouring petrol on a fire is usually a bad idea, lawyers cost lots of money, arguing over a point of law (that effects you not) is a waste of money (unless it will cause a problem for you)
