My husband and I are about to divorce. He wants a consent

Customer Question

My husband and I are about to divorce. He wants a consent order that says once the kids grow up i sign my 25% share of his company back over. Do I need to make a claim on his workplace pension for the sake of my kids or is it just advisable?

What will happen to the sale proceeds if the house is sold?

The house will no be sold as there isn't enough equity in to split and buy elsewhere. Otherwise it'd be 50/50
