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...
I have just read another post where a lady is in a similar situation to my own (Lifebegins42).... in that, she is quite positive that her ex will lie on his form E.

Not wanting to hijack her thread, so.....

This "Questionaire of of Respondent/Applicant" that Jacko says will be presented to the court before 'First Appointment' ????

My 'First Appointment' is next Monday.... and I haven't even seen his form E... although I had a letter from my sol a couple of weeks ago, saying that he had submitted his form E to the court (without documentary evidence eg, wage slips, bank statements attached)
How am I to 'raise any questions'.... when I haven't seen it????

Hi SL
When i had my FDR hearing in Nov , he bought a new form E that he had sworn that morning, he asked if the judge could make a ruling on that day and the judge said of course not it has only been in the other parties hand for an hour, a repeat FDR has now been arranged for next month i went over his new form E and raised more questions with my sol , you will i'm sure be able to raise these questions after you see his form E you will proberbly see it at court next week and hopefully as he has not submitted what is needed bank statements , wage slips he will be made to pay the costs for wasting the court date.

By the very fact that someone has not supplied documentary evidence to back up their finances, leaves me to suspect that evasion is at work

Do not accept what is said without the evidence to support it

Hi SL,

You can't raise questions on something you haven't seen or haven't had time to study, it is as straightforward as that!

Please bear in mind to add to your questionnaire that you reserve the right to ask further questions in the light of your xtb's answers because the idea is that there is only one round of questioning (otherwise questionnaires could go back and forth for years) and if you or your sol forget to ask something you be stuffed.

Bon appetit!
