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.

stbx has said he has signed and returned forms to the courts, can i phone the courts to see if they have received them and also could i ask them if possible how long it would take? or should i just wait to hear from them ?

If you are self repping then yes you can. You can also if you are using a solicitor. But when you have a sol, they sometimes dont like talking to you as you should really go thru your sol. But I would wait a week after he has supposed to have returned the forms before ringing and hope that you get a helpful clerk. The courts work fast, but fast like a snail works fast. C.

Thankyou, i think i will leave it a week as you suggest, its frustrating though as this will be the 2nd lot of forms he said he as returned after saying the first time round that the courts had lost them !!!
