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.

Wondering if anyone can help? I advised my estranged husbands solicitor regarding a letter I sent to a very specific government body (OPG) informing them that said letter with personal and private and I wasn't prepared to share that information with them until they had addressed a number of issues I've raised previously. The opposing solicitor though ignored my comments and has gone to the governmental department and managed to obtain the details of my letter.

I am astounded this could happen can anyone advise please if this is legal?

Unfortunately you do not give enough information to answer your question.

It rather depends upon who was the subject of the letter that went to the OPG.

If the solicitor obtained details from the OPG, the OPG must have been happy to release the information.
