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 know why a Judge would award £1000 against my husband? We are at nici stage and have furious rows over financial settlements. I'm interested if this has any implications, hidden meaning or where the money goes

Are you divorcing your husband? Or is he divorcing you?

I would say then that the £1000 is the costs towards the actual divorce as usually (unless by agreement or exceptional circumstances) the respondent pays for the divorce part.

The AR and Children parts each person pays their own.

Well, my ex divorced me. I acted for myself and legal aid picked up the tab for the ex's procession of solicitors. I was pleasantly surprised as initially the other side were saying that all costs were going to go against me, which naturally I would have fought tooth and claw against.

The other side always say that. It's like a standard script for them.

A bit like threatening jail time that we discussed on another thread a few days ago, eh? ;)
