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.

You do your best to answer what you can before the hearing, its only unanswered or questions not fully answered the judge is supposed to deal with.

It sort of depends on how the appointment goes. The judge will make a decision on what is reasonable to be answered and what does not need to be answered.

If it is the case on getting disclosure you have asked for and then it transpires that further statements are needed then a judge might order on finding of facts that it is relevent - on the other hand the judge may decide that it is not.

The only way to find the answer to the question you ask is to go to court and get the view of the judge and then take it from that.

I would say that usually one years bank statements is usual and I think from memory two years business accounts (long time ago since I went through that). Anyway, my ex insisted on me supplying two years bank statements for a business and two years statements for personal and business affairs. I supplied them in any case voluntarily even before the first appearence in court. To this day he has still not disclosed one years business bank statements.

Well lets hope he gets crucified - sounds like he is trying to crucify you.

In law you only need to keep statements and accounts for 7 years - is he on drugs?
