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.

Most solicitors are happy with D81 instead of form E because it saves a lot of costs.

The Consent Order should be drawn up by one of your solicitors and checked by the other''s before signing. One solicitor can''t do both due to conflict of interests. If you''re going to have the consent order drawn up then this site does it for £139, cheap as chips.

Many solicitors (including the Wikivorce service I believe) have their own form for schedules of assets, income, liabilities and
other material facts, using Form E as a guide to the format of the disclosure. Other solicitors just use Form E , but because it is voluntary it doesn''t have to filled in with the rigour as when there is no agreement and Form E is required by the court.
