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 sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Firstly I am Ladybelle now, I changed my name from Agoraphobic Annie ..... I didnt like that name and after someone mentioned being recognised, I thought I would be more 'anonymous' LOL

Anyway .... a friend of mine in Canada says, over there, all Divorce is a matter for public record ?? So anyone can look up to see what reason for the divorce was ? It all goes on a Court record. And anyone, future employers ? or anyone can access this record.

Do we have such a thing here ? Is there a public record for divorces ? And the reasons ?? So when I file for adultery against soon 2bx - will it show as that ? She speculated that if it did ? he is the sort that might not want such a thing in public ?? so he might not want me to divorce him for that and might want to wait the 2 years for separation ?

Anyone know please ?

I don;t have any idea I am affraid.
I didn;t think anything to do with it was public record though.
Thought it was just between the two and the courts.... but I am rubbish on these things, just saw you hadnt been replied to and didnt want to ignore your post.

Someone on here will know.

Ladybelle,

As I understand it the details of the petition are not placed on any sort of public record. They remain within the court.

Mike

ps If you are going to change your name, it's best to keep it a secret! :ohmy:

LOL I know, but I didnt want to jump in and have people think I was jumping in without introducing myself hehe

If the information is within the court though, is that still accessible for anyone to apply for ? Or is what goes on in Court secret ? I am sorry for so many questions, it was just something I hadnt thought of or had cause to think of before.

It doesnt bother me in the slightest if it is available, but just curious now.
