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 stbx is in the process of applying to the courts for a financial order and has requested that we move the court.

Is there any point in me fighting this? Is one court likely to be any different to any other (for example, do some apply different rules to pension valuations?)

Could I pre-empt the issue by getting my application in for a financial order first?

It completely depends on her reasons for the transfer. Where do you both live? are there young children who would require childcare if STBX needed to travel?

My ex applied to a court 350+ miles for where he, myself and the children live. My solicitor said she was 99.9% certain it would be transferred but ex would not agree. The day before a transfer hearing was set/ barrister booked etc ex backed down at last minute and agreed to the transfer. (he knew he was not going to get his way!!)However being unfairly awkward only cost money!!. The case was transferred.
