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.

My first time on the forum. Does anybody know how long it takes to get back the court costs from your divorce. I got my nisi on May 5th and my absolute six weeks later, my ex agreed to pay costs, but i've heard nothing since.

Hello

When you say agreed did he agree on the petition or just informally.

Hi

She agreed on the petition and the costs were granted to me. I've been back to the court and they told me that it was now up to her to pay and out of their hands. If I wanted to get it back to the court and pursue the claim, it would cost me another 80 quid!
