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.

my exs started to divorce me last year and didnt fight it as I am happy in another relationship. after months he still hasnt applied for a Decree Absolute. I have filled in and sent back every form I have had but nothing, I believe he may have got wind of the fact that my partner and I would like to get married. I have conacted the court and they have sent me a form to apply for the Absolute myself but I have no idea how to fill it in!!!! its asking about how long the judge will need ect. I have form d11 and d36

It is a formal resolution of the finances of your marriage.

Yes technically you can apply for the Absolute using that form, but whether that is a good idea or not is another matter. Courts tell you the procedure, not whether it''s advisable or not.

When you say "sorted" do you mean signed and sealed by a court? Or just done informally between you?
