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.

Even though I suspect that my wife is comitting adultery (we are living apart) she will not admit it to me. When I confronted her and her "friend" they both said they are just friends. Is there some legal reasons why she will not admit it. I have asked her several times but she keeps denying it. A friend said that she will have less legal rights if she admits it? Is this true or is there another reason, apart from the obvious that she isn't comitting adultery.:(

No. In the UK divorce is no blame. It dont matter if she admits it or not. As long as she signs the papers and returns them. But you have to think tacticaly (did I spell that right?). You need her to sign off the pettion. If she dont you have a real problem getting divorced. If I were you I would drop down to Unreasonable Behavour. UB is an easer pill to swallow than Adultary. Seeing as she is not admiting it when you ask her she is unlikly to admit it on paper. But thats up to you. All the best mate. Chris.

I don't think there is any legal benefit to not admitting to adultery as blame is not taken into account. There will probably be another reason, Obviously I don't know your circumstances and can only go on my own experience (a lying, cheating extb). My extb is a gutless coward, maybe yours is too.

So why is it chris that they cannot come clean? Seems to be a common pattern in those committing adultery.

Thanks Autumn,
You and ChrisM have answered my question. I suppose she is feeling guilty and just can bring herself to admit to me or herself. No balls I guess.
