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.

Bit of help please

I''ve finally got the funds to start my divorce and Consent Order. I was planning to use the combined package on here.

We have already virtually agreed everything as we have been separated for almost 2 half years...

Does my ex2b have to seek advice from a solicitor or do we just agree the financial arrangements between us and then its sent to the court?

We dont really have any assets to fight over as the house is currently in negative equity!


Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place

In an ideal world he should, that said many don`t due to the cost, when i used the wiki service they sent my ex the order and she just signed it and sent it back.

The judge decided to call us both to court so he could make sure she understood what she had agreed, we were in and out in six minutes, order sealed there and then.

He can use the wiki service for advice on the order it costs £99, it saves a potential short court hearing i suppose.
