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.

Does anyone have experience of waiting for judgement after a final hearing? I have been waiting to hear if decision was to be delivered as a written or oral judgement and have now heard it is to be delivered orally by judge and we must attend court again to hear it delivered. Is this an indication that it is a good or bad thing? What might influence the decision on how it should be delivered?

Thank you

It makes no difference if oral or written, even when oral it will be written after, its just the judges preference, some like to ask you both back and tell you what will happen others like to email/write, the method gives no indication as to the outcome.
