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.

Point out in a letter your disappointment and say

" Please confirm you have complied with the President's Direction
27th July 2006 regarding a paginated bundle for the hearing.
I have not received an index or bundle from you"

I trust I will not have to bring to the Courts attention your late open offer and failure to comply with the President's Direction dated the27th July 2006.

I trust that you will resolve the matter by supplying a complete bundle forthwith as if I do not have a bundle valuable Judicial time and inconvenience may be caused at the final hearing. [ If you are close to H solrs you could suggest you attend office at a pre arranged time to collect a bundle and ask if that can be agreed!]

If the Judge has ultimately to adjourn the same as a result I reserve my position on costs"

Background:-

Sir Mark Potter P issued a practice direction to achieve consistency in all family courts (other than the Family Proceedings Court) in the preparation of court bundles and other related matters. The practice direction, which was to have effect from 2 October 2006 and applied prima facie to all hearings of whatever nature before a Family Division judge or in the Royal Courts of Justice and to all other family proceedings listed for more than one hour, required the applicant to prepare a paginated bundle, the contents of which were if possible to be agreed by all parties, and made detailed provision as to the contents and format of the bundle, the timetable for preparing and lodging the bundle, lodging, removing and relodging the same

As you are acting in person his solicitors have to prepare this - A very time consuming business!!!

Full details of what the bundle should contain in this link:

That should shake them up a bit eh:)

Best of luck

All done and dusted guys!

The Judge complimented me on the way I had conducted myself and on the professionalism of my case, now that sounded sweet and made up for of the long hours and hard work!

She then ruled that I should pay my wife pretty much what I offered her in the summer of 2006 over a glass of wine with no order for costs....

Her Barrister Billy chap looked jolly cross.

I got very drunk last night, the relief was immense. My head hurts but I had to share this with you all.

Thanks for your support but a very BIG and special THANK YOU to Atilla!

Have a great weekend!
