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.

Need advice after a battle of who divorces who my stbx has agreed if I amend the cross Petition he will agree

We have a court date in 4 weeks what do I need to do to amend the cross petition And will this negate the need to go to court, and what''s the cheapest way, I do have a solicitor and got an appointment on Friday but if I can do it myself I will

Hope someone can advise

Regards Ellie

If the hearing is to decide which Petition takes precedent then yes it will but you`ll both have to let court know you have now agreed so they can cancel the hearing.

Do you know how to amend a petition?.
