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.

I posted my Consent Order in Friday to Bury. Anyone got any idea of timescales for judges to look at it? Any one had any experience or Clean Break being denied?
Thank you x

We have been warned to expect a time frame of 20 weeks for Consent Orders to be processed because of the Covid 19 situation.

If the agreement does not look fair, the judge may ask for a written explanation or ask for a short hearing. If they still aren't satisfied, the order will be rejected. It coukd aslso be rejected if the paperwork is not properly completed.

Have you had the Consent Order drafted by a solicitor??

20 weeks seems such a long time to wait :(yes it’s been done by a solicitor. Am I right in thinking they have opened more courts to help with the back log? Divorce has been going on for 2 years I just want it done so much.
