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 guys,

Ex has just completed D8 forms - we have 3 children so has also completed the D8A.

Yesterday he dropped the D8A forms through the letterbox with a note for me to sign them before he sends off the D8 application to court?

Should I sign at this point? or should the D8A come to me from the court for signing?

Any advice would be great, thank you!

It needs to be sent to court then they send D8 and D8a to you then you sign it and send it back to court.

Your ex obviously does not know the process.

So don`t sign it.
