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.

Hi, I have written to the court to ask for a telephone conference but heard nothing.

I have investigated further and established that there are 4 providers.

I have registered with one of the providers.

Will the court inform me of the decision of the judge?

Has the court written to my X to get consent, is this why I have not heard anything? Can X refuse?

The justice.gov.uk site says excluded from the scheme are where all parties are unrepresented? Does that mean 2 L.I.P.s are unrepped?

It is a Directions hearing estimated 60mins.

Any info welcome for a county court.

You should ring the court and they will be able to tell you whether your request has gone to the judge and whether their are any applications from the other side.

If there is an application you should contact the other side and ask for a copy as they should not be making ex parte (without notice) applications in family proceedings without a very good reason for doing so.

If the court is not able to give any information ask them when you should ring back and be persistent but polite.

I requested a telephone conference and was told by the court that the Judge was considering.

My children tell me X is attending the hearing. I haven''t heard to the contrary.

Now 2 days before Directions hearing, I haven''t been told if I can do the telephone conference or anything despite calling everyday.

What do I do???
Surely Judge will be bias towards X if attends and I can''t.

If there is to be a hearing then you need to move and get to court. If you do not attend it will go against you.

Ring the court again and find out what is happening - if you really cannot attend then you need to get the hearing date moved and there is little time left with the hearing scheduled in two days.

Do not leave it to chance.

This lady lives abroad so attending could be a big problem for her, i`m not sure why no decision has been made, its seems to be being left until the eleventh hour.
