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.


Do I wish to comment on statements made?

Hello everyone,

I''m just filling in my Acknowledgement of Service.

I DO wish to comment on comments made by my ex on some paperwork she''s filed, but is it wise?

She''s stated that I''ve reduced contact, withheld contact, I''m a bad communicator, that I don''t have the children''s best interest at heart and that though the children state that they want to remain at home with me; (so after hours of debate (in which my eldest insists on staying at home) sometimes they stay)... and previously they stayed without my ex having a problem with it.

She''s stating that they (the children) live with both of us currently (even though frequency of visits and stays over has always been around about 2 nights a week with many changes because of her inconsistency).

She''s also stated that one particular time she abused me and tried to say that I abused her and the kids with my actions.

I''ve cross applied to court for residence, contact and prohibited steps.

What''s the best course of action?

Thanks!!!!!

No, it''s a complete waste of time and effort and may jeopardise the divorce.

Just say you do not agree with them. No need to say exactly what you disagree with or why. Just say you do not intend to contest the divorce, but that you do not agree with the facts stated, and that you reserve the right to deny them if they are used in any financial or child contact proceedings.

Thanks Cookie....

This is for an Acknowledgement of Service of papers for my ex filing papers for residence and contact in connection with my children; they live with me, and she''s accused me of some stuff.

May still not be wise to comment, but I could keep it simple "I do not agree with the statements made" so as to keep it open ended?
