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?

Dear Friends on wikivorce

Hope you are well and had a relaxed weekend.

I need some guidance on how to prepare a chronology for the First Direction Hearing.

1. What is to be mentioned
2. Mention is detailed or brief?
3. Being a long marriage more than 15 years, what are the important points worth mentioning ?
4. How do the court judge look at it and what is relevantly considered?
5. Is it in the ascending or descending order? e.g. start with 2022?
6. Do we attach evidences?

We have expert people on board, some guidance in this matter is urgently solicited.

Thank you very much

It should be a very simple bullet point list of key dates relating to the the marriage. Use a court header with details of the case.

Dates should be on the left of the page and start with dates of birth of both parties.

You can include dates of things like purchase and sale of property if that is relevant.

You finish up with the dates of form A, exchange of form E and first appointment.

The chronology should be agreed between the parties.
