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.

The statement of issues should be a simple list of the matters you do not agree on that remain to be settled. You could always produce your own.
Similarly you could produce an amended chronology. What is the problem with what you have been sent?
Are you represented?

For some reason that I have no idea about, he''s increased my estimated income by almost £5k! He''s stated that the FMH was sold, but it was rented, rent paid by me, date of marriage is wrong, total crap about the handout STBX received from my MIL before split. STBX is saying that I incurred all marital debts, untrue.

It is far from the simple list that I made, rather a thesis of my supposed bad behaviour!

The courts are well used to spouses badmouthing and if the statement is very long the judge won''t have time to sift out the salient points. Unless conduct is so bad it can''t be ignored the court won''t take it into account. Cases when conduct has had an effect on finances it has been very serious such as assaulting someone to the extend they are permanently damaged and can''t continue in their occupation or attempted murder to prevent a spouse making financial claims.

I don''t know which hearing you are having tomorrow (I''m new to the forums although, sadly, 21months in and still not divorced). I have had IM hearing and an FDR. For the FRD, we had barristers who did meet and negotiate and exchange offers prior to the hearing. It wasn''t anything suspect.
