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.

I don’t believe my Solicitor understands equality

Hi all,

I am involved with complicated AR proceedings.

I was a LIP and then as things got tough I went to a Solicitor who understood that I was not made of money and I went along with them.

Now I am £20,000 in and FH is in December. Now told it will cost me at least another £30,000 in fees and Counsel.

Only had one bill from them and now I am a position we’re if I do not settle £5000 and put in place funding and will be abandoned by them.

I looked on their website and asked whether their was any discount that they could give, they said no. I asked why ? in view of the fact that they advertise on line stating that if I was a Police Officer I would get 30% discount on hourly rate ? Substantial saving if I was a PO ? I was refused.

I asked what was the difference between me and a PO ? No comment !

How can the do this ? This is clearly discrimination and equality. I feel very angered as this could have saved me £6000 but more importantly I may have chosen to stay with them with the discount. I feel deceived
