Separated and it’s time to sort things out

The first step towards working out who gets what of your financial assets is to establish exactly what you’ve both got.

If you go to a solicitor, they’ll need a Form E from each of you. Don’t waste money going before you’ve done these and can take both forms with you – including your pension valuation(s).

Mediation may well be your best route at this stage, and different mediators will have different financial forms they will want you to complete first. So make a plan. Decide what you want to achieve, and identify your best route for getting there.

I can give you more information and help you make your plan.
