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.

Consent Advice Needed Please! :(

Hi all,

I have sent my consent form to my ex''s solicitors back in November and now, they send be a revised one as the court wants to change a few wordings.

I have accepted an offer on a house to move out back in December and now the sellers are getting peed off of waiting (which im not surprised).

Do you know how long will it take after the new Consent Order has been signed and returned? How long will the court take action?

Please help. I dont want to lose this house Im buying.

SOunds like someone has sat on the Order. The Courts can take a long time but not that Long.

I would write to the solicitors and explain your situation and tell them if they are not capable of sending the Order to the Court you will take it in yourself.

It really depends on your local court and how understaffed it is. Some courts are turning things round within a week or so, others are taking much longer. Why not ask the court how long the expect to take to turn it around?
