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.

The D81 form Statement of information for a Consent Order

You need to complete up to four of these if there is a charge/mortgage on any property

It is best to get your s2bx to let you know the relevant information that applies to him, if for some reason that is not possible then just complete the parts applicable to yourself

One copy is for you

One copy is for s2bx

One copy is for the court

One or more extra for each person/bank etc that hold a mortgage against any property

You can download the form for ease of completion and subsequent print out, saves having to write out each one, you cannot save it as it is a .PDF file

Link to online form D81:-

www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/d81_0401.pdf


All copies are submitted to the court; keep a photocopy or other hard copy, just in case any go missing

You need to advise the court who to send to and their addresses

Hi

Thanks for replying.

I am the petitioner citing unreasonable behaviour due to alcoholism which he admits. I have paid him his share of the house and he moved out on payment, deeds are now in my sole name.

Will he see my completed form? I am now seeing another person and don't want to sign my life away for the next six months as to whether I will be cohabiting or not. I feel I have wasted enough time trying to explain the drink scenario to him for the last three years and really don't want commit to anything (either way) for another six months.

I presume what you have done is settled the finances but not through a formal agreement.

You need to encompass a formal agreement with the application for Consent Order and in that agreement you both need to agree not to have any claims now or in the future.

Once that is rubber stamped by the court it is binding on both parties, the only recourse either side can claim in the future is if it was proved that either party had been evasive during the original settlement.

Yes he will get to see your current financial situation just as much as you will see his, you must disclose if you intend to cohabit or not
