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.

Can a tennants in common be disputed.
I've just signed a 50/50 split on house but my partner said if you leave me I'll dispute it and win as I can proved you put in less than me... He didn't want a 70/30 split even though I offered it.

Are you married? If you are then the division of property will be based on family law and could well end up differently depending on needs.

If you are not married the division of property is governed by property law. If you hold the property in equal shares as tenants in common, then that is how proceeds of sale would be splir. There may be a deed of trust that sets out unequal shares.

The division of property may be cs to each hallenged but it is a risky business because whoever loses pays all the costs.

In short marriages where there are no children the normal approach is to each take out what you put in and split any increase in value equally between you. Might that be a useful approach?
