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.

Quick overview of an FDA that happened a few weeks ago for those heading to one and might find it useful.
A argued against sharing costs of asset/pension valuations, which was dismissed. R argued that very significant assets were missed off A's form E and should be disclosed, but the Judge decided they weren't relevant in any way and dismissed the related Questions from the questionairre. Judge then decided that R must value assets which have very minimal value (some £0) and therefore weren't on Form E. So all in all, there wasn't any consistency!
One party also clearly had someone in the room with them (remote hearing) but the judge didn't give anyone a chance to object, which was also odd.
