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.

Well the impossible has happened. The opposition won the case despite the home team describing it as appalling and unsound. And now the permission to appeal has been turned down as a judge was unable to change the in extremis discretion of the lower court. The team is aghast, shell shocked at the result. No use whatsoever. The legal fees require the house and therefore business/income to be sold. The home team did not deploy an argument in the main hearing despite being given chapter and verse about it. As a result the opposition argued that my partners income was not envisaged at the Consent Order and this was accepted so she had adjusted without hardship. The offer for settlement which the home team knew about but did not declare, adduce makes it clear that employment was to be maximised from an early age to make up the difference between the ex husbands offer and the ex wife's needs. Having lost all faith in the legal profession and legal process do we sue the solicitors, get them to claim on their professional indemnity or just chalk it up to life's experiences and vow to do all legal work ourselves in future.
PS. I am going to write a cautionary tale on the site in due course.
