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 I am new on here so not sure if this is the right place to post hoping someone can give me some advise here is my situation:

I was married to my wife for a year and since then we have been separated

She filed for divorce under unreasonable behaviour with some outrageous claims, knowing her she wanted ammo to put out to society so I decided to defend the case as I had lots of evidence against her claims. Finally the judge called us in and we agreed to one count of unreasonable behaviour which I was happy to sign for and the courts provided a court order for the changes to be made. Since then she filled with the amendments as required but decided to add more. So again I contacted the courts to say I am happy to proceed but the Petition was not as agreed as per court order. Since then the courts must have asked her to change it and she hasnt done anything. It is how ever coming up to 2 years of seperation so I can raise my own petition under the 2 year rule is this the best way to go about it ? Is there away of having her petition closed down or should I leave it open?

Thanks in advance

If you want more control over the proceedings it would be best to submit your own Petition. As far as I know only she can close her Petition down but others may know more.

They can still use it until they want to change it I think
