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.

Not sure if this is in the right place.

Basically, my stbx didn''t bother to send back the Acknowledgement of Service so I applied for bailiff service. This was effected last week.

If he does not return the AoS this time, what happens?

Thank you xxx

If the bailiff reports back with a successful service, you can use that to apply for Decree Nisi - no acknowledgement is required.

Thank you Charles. I have been told today that he has actually returned the Acknowledgement of Service by recorded delivery.

Just got to wait for the next stage now :)

Once you have the acknowledgement you have to apply for the next stage, it doesn''t ''happen''. Simply put, you lodge a Petition, you apply for the Decree Nisi then you apply for the Decree Absolute.
