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 JR,

You either agree as to who pays costs or ask the Court to decide.

thanks Elle

not sure how it will go - knowing him he will not respond until I have no other choice - and so I will have to pay.

JR,

It is standard procedure to tell the other party you will be seeking costs...does not mean you/they will or that you/they will be awarded to or by either party. Take care
