BBC Radio 4's Money Box
Wednesday, 9 November 2011 at 1502 GMT On Radio 4 and Online

On Wednesday's programme Vincent Duggleby and guests answer your questions on divorce, dissolving a civil partnership and separation.

If you and your partner are divorcing, dissolving a civil partnership or splitting up after cohabitation, you may have to face the difficult task of dividing your assets.

This could involve selling your home, splitting a pension fund and arranging maintenance payments for children.

What do you need to consider and what are the likely costs?

How do you decide what is fair and what happens if you don't agree?

Can a pre-nuptial or pre-civil partnership agreement help?

Perhaps you have a question about supporting children.

Do you have any rights if you have been cohabiting?

Whatever your question, Vincent Duggleby and guests were here to help.

Vincent Duggleby was joined by:

• John Fotheringham, Director at Lindsays Solicitors

• Dani Glover, Director, Personal Financial Planning, Smith & Williamson

• Julie Mitchell, Advice Services Manager at Gingerbread

• Janet Tresman, Solicitor in Family Law and Consultant at Newman Law

Presenter: Vincent Duggleby
Producer: Fiona Woods
