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 decided to self rep after the disaster that was my final hearing. I have spoken to the County Court and asked them what the correct forms are for me to download to appeal but the lady I spoke to was disappointingly vague: ''I think they begin with an ''N'' but there is no-one available today to confirm''....

Does anyone know the correct form numbers please?

Many thanks!

Sure, it''s N161. It''s a nasty technical business doing an appeal. You have to show that the judge''s decision was plainly wrong, which isn''t easy. It''s not enough to persuade the appeal judge that they would have made a different order - you have to show that no judge could have made the order which was made. You will need to comply with the relevant appeal provisions in the Family Procedure Rules. You''ll find them in Rule 30 and its Practice Direction.

Thanks Jonathan.
Yes N161 is the form I have downloaded: the first 3 pages are ok but then its downhill after that! I like to think I''m quite an intelligent chap but it looks like I will have to go through my solicitor with this after all, at least to help with the paperwork....
Its 21 days after the Final Hearing tomorrow but we only got the written order a week ago and it appears that the last page is missing (we are trying to chase up the Court with this): based on this can I get the appeal deadline extended as I don''t have the full info on what I''m appealing against yet??

Well this has moved on a bit over the last few days....my stbx has breached most of the points the judge made in the order already.
Do I need to complete a form D11 to get in front of a judge again asap? And will it be the same judge? (God I hope not!).
Can anyone advise? Time is not on my side as by stbx''s non-compliance has meant our FMH is now in repossession proceedings...
