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 would like to see a copy of the family court file for financial proceeding which were initiated by me as an LiP. The case is on-going.

A number of administrative errors have been made by the Court, and for this reason I would like to see a copy of the file notes kept by staff at the Court. It seems that Rule 29.12 of the Family Procedure Rules would not allow me to do this, "Access to and inspection of documents retained in court".

So my question is, would I be able to ask for this information under the FOI regs? Does anyone have any experience of asking for such information?

The reason I would like to see the information is that I suspect I have been lied to and mislead by the court staff. I have not been able to get a straight answer from them about anything. I have made a formal complaint (which I shall be escalating), and even the response to this is misleading and factually incorrect.

Thank you
