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.

We divorced in 2006 and I filed for reduce my maintenance payments in Sept, 2009.
W then has breast cancer and we "start" court proceedings in 2011.
My business is not doing well, I am 55 and have worked for myself for 11 years, so hard to employ.
W has only worked in part-time jobs.

Between the FDR and FH, my ex-wife appointed solicitors....just AFTER the due date for the exchange of form E''s.

The FDR judge ordered that we exchange NARRATIVE STATEMENTS at the same time as filing form Es and Exhibits.

I filed what I now understand to be a cross between a Statement of ISSUES and a NARRATIVE statement, covering the main headings of S25, i.e. income, prospects etc.

Am I correct in understanding that the NS is my argument as to how we came to be at a FH, that is covering from the first court appearance through to, but not including, the FDR, together with supporting documentation and arguments for why I say what I say: is that correct?

Do I start just from this particular hearing or do I go back to the original divorce case?

Also, can anyone send me an example NS?

Thank you in advance
