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 All,

Could anyone help me with a template letter to dismiss the services of my existing solicitor?

Thanks

Sorry might have just figured it out - do I just do the FP8 form and send it with a covering letter to my existing sol?

The FP8 form is a notice to the court. If you send it to your solicitor, they will send it to the court and charge you for the letter - as they are quite right to do.

Send a letter to your solicitor informing them that their services are no long required and that you have sent a notice of acting in person to the court.

You should also sent the FP8 to the other side as they will then have to deal with you direct.

Hi Charles thanks, my stbx has sacked his solicitor and have had no direct replies from him since - he hasn't sent an fp8, presumably it would still be appropriate for me to send him one directly anyway?
