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.

Good morning

As per the title I submitted a D11 in person at the court last Friday: does anyone know how long on average I should have to wait to hear from them?

Paid £45 fee for the judge to look at and hopefully issue Directions initially...

Thanks!

Well just phoned the court to chase up a response to my D11: got the standard ''allow 10 working days'' message before speaking to someone who said it was still waiting to be seen by the judge... told them it was nearly 3 weeks now so was told again they were ''in arrears'' with their paperwork and they had no idea how long it would take to process.

So frustrating!

August is a bad time for Courts because many of the staff are off, as are most of the legal profession. Courts run skeleton staff during this time and things do tend to run slowly.

Keep a regular chase up is the best advice.
