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''ve learnt that wikipeeps rarely answer my questions - if they leave me for 24hrs, I read more threads and find out the answers for myself :D

Errr what are you asking, does an LIP need form H?, if so only if you have lawyer costs relating to AR, if you are LIP from the beginning then no forget it.

I''ve got lawyer costs from previous proceedings in Scotland that I need to list, but I''ve already asked about those.

My thread was about other costs incurred as LIP and where to put them - but as I say, I found the answer so deleted the question!

Form H only deals with costs from AR proceedings, also I have never known an LIP claim costs, technically you can but it''s a bit of grey area.

Any money you have spent on lawyers is included on form H
