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.

Do you need help going to court over a Financial Settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support for people who are going to court over a fair financial settlement, for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Just to update you my final hearing is still on going, I had 2days in Jan, will have one day next week and 4days in May in total going to be 7days. is that usual?

Please advice re case laws, where I can find recent ones, how can I make successful arguments that pensions should be shared as to the point of now and not at separation which was more 5 years ago.

Thank in advance.

Hi, I have never heard of ''an ongoing'' final hearing. But then I''m no expert. With regards to case law, there is a wealth of information on the wiki library. If you are self repping though, it may be wise to ''undertsand'' the case law but not get into some legal wrangling over it. It may prove hard to take on a barrister and judge with regards to case law and you wouldn''t want them to think you were trying to be a lawyer or they may just treat you as such and expect you to know things you don''t.

Good Luck

Are you a multi millionaire? I remember your name but can''t remember your case. 7 days suggests that there are alot of assets and a lot of financial matters to finalis.
