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, can anyone tell me if costs were awarded at Nisi hearing at what point do they become payable. Would it be at the time the Absolute is issued?

Many thanks

JG

The order often does not specify and is technically payable within 14 days. However, most people take the date of Decree Absolute as the date for payment and court rules provide for payment within 14 days unless otherwise specified.

So i guess if the other side''s solicitor is requesting payment now that is the time to pay up. What then happens if the applicant decides not to proceed further with the Absolute and it is up to tha Respondant to carry on to finalise divorce?
