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 partner's ex wife is in the process of divorcing him for unreasonable behavior(supposedly) He has had to complete a financial statement and they were supposed to exchange them two weeks ago. She is not ready and we haven't heard from her solicitor in weeks. My partner cannot afford a solicitor. We have completed everything at the correct time and the first hearing is on 11th April. We don't know what she wants financially as she or her solicitor haven't said. Are they allowed to keep us in the dark until the court date, surely they need to inform my partner what she is fighting him for financially before the court date. Will she also be in trouble for not completing and exchanging financial statements on time and will the court still follow through with the court date if this is held up? Please help as have never done this before.
