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.

My divorce settlement has been agreed and I have a Consent Order and due to problems with the solicitor I have used I wish to self represent myself in order to finish the matter off. Please could someone advise me whether I need to file a Notice of Acting and if so does anyone have a precedent they can email to me? Would be grateful for your help many thanks.

Eileen,

You need a Notic of Acting in Person to send to the court, the other party (or their solicitor) and to your solicitor who will then also inform the court that they have been legally discharged.

I have one somewhere but can't find it at the moment. If I do I'll post up the reference.
