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.


Have you used form E1

E1 is used for "other financial remedies" (financial relief/assistance) that aren''t so run of the mill such as applications for child maintenance under Schedule 1 Children Act 1989, orders under Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act 1984 and in cases of neglect to maintain or to alter an agreement applications under ss27 & 35 Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 respectively.

E is used when the application is for the run of the mill "financial orders" (financial provision) relating to divorce eg financial orders settling on divorce, pension sharing, orders preventing disposition of assets, variations.

Does that help?

Welcome to Wikivorce - your username seems familiar, but can''t think why....

And to answer your question - no, I haven''t been asked to fill in form E1, but maybe that''s because I''m already divorced, and we don''t have Form E1 on Scotland (or any other Form E for that matter)

Have I been of any help? :p

Dukey, It will be interesting to see the responses and it would be good to know how many people have been involved in "other financial remedy" proceedings and if they used form E instead of E1. Certainly a good number of people have used E1 when Form E was required!

My point was there aren''t likely to be that many applications for financial remedies because they aren''t run of the mill. For example, I can only think of two neglect to maintain cases in about 10 years. I think you may be lucky to get a response unless we keep bumping up the thread. ;)
