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.

I have searched before posting, honest, but couldn't find the answer. Is there anyway to tell when my Decree Absolute will come through?

The application has been sent off and it'd be nice to get some idea of whether it will take two days or two months before I'm officially divorced.

Thanks

Beastyboy. I would like to know the same thing. It depends (I think) on how busy the court is. This time of year courts are very busy. Could be months :(Chris

Well to answer my own question, it was dealt with the day after the application though it took until the end of the week for our solicitors to be told. As I'd got the case number, I ended up just phoning up the court to and they were very helpful and told me the details.

I got the number to phone from www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/infoabout/family/index.htm
