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.

On what does your soon to be ex base his supposedly superior knowledge?

Unless he is a family law expert, the judge is more likely to be correct than he is. It sounds to me as though he is just trying to intimidate you and make you lose confidence in yourself and your legal team. Keep cool and take no notice.

At the risk of stating the obvious, that is what you employ lawyers for.

It is of course perfectly possible for lawyers to disagree.

It is possible for judges to be wrong, but at the end of the day it is the opinion of the DJ which matters.

I agree with Sadie. Try not to worry too much about it.
