1. Overview

You can work out an agreement with your partner to avoid going to court.

Use the divorce and separation calculator to work out your finances and what you own.

Once you’ve reached an agreement, you can get the court to make it legally binding, by applying for a ‘consent order’.

If you can’t agree

You can ask the court to decide using a ‘financial order’ if you can’t agree.

You’ll need to consider mediation before you go to court.
