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.

I''m really concerned as I believe the Final Hearing may be adjourned due to lack of response by the applicant and I don''t know what, if any, options I have.

Can anyone tell me what options I have?

I sup[pose a lot would depend on the reasons for the adjournment. Let''s face it, if you were ill, you''d want an adjournment too, I rather think,.

That would be true of course - The applicant has nothing prepared, hasn''t filed or served anything, as the Court ordered, and I''m worried that lack of preparation or required information will result in the Judge indulging the Applicant

Does anyone know where I can find out more about Final Hearing?

The library, and the google search bar on wiki, just add "final hearing" and you`ll get to read for a week.

I''m dealing with a similar situation, I think.

My STBX has clearly not prepared and has just sleep-walked her way through proceedings, and now is banging on about being too busy to review anything and threatening delay.

We have had four months notice about this, and I am the one preparing the bundle, not her.

I am letting the Court know in advance that I strongly oppose any further delays!
