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.

Hi my divorce started 14 months ago since which my ex has been evading filling in form E3 just sending back not filled in except his name DOB date of marriage and when he moved out. Solicitors are sorting out legal aid for me and due to repeated letters to the ex for finances they are you g to take it to court for a Consent Order.... What does this entail??will I be called in or just him??...he moved in with his girlfriend and got engaged 6 weeks after we split and in the last 8 months has had 3 foreign holiday brought her a pedigree dog and living the perfect life....I feel he is just dragging things on to make my life hell while she just brags about her amazing b/f on Facebook.

If the matter goes to court you will both have to make full financial disclosure and attend all hearings even if you have a solicitor.

If he does not comply, ultimately the judge could decide to jail him. It would be daft to let it get to that stage though.

Legal aid is only available in a very small number of cases where domestic abuse is an issue and income and assets are below a certain threshold. It may need to be repaid in some circumstances. If that does not apply to you, it may be that the dilieis arranging a litigation loan to be paid back from any settlement.
