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.

To keep your address secret you have a few options depending on your case.

1) Do everything through court. You can ask the court to keep your address secret. Of course this means you will have to go in front of a judge and will not be able to make an out of court settlement or Consent Order.

2) Use a solicitor yourself. All correspondence can go to your solicitor. This may be costly since usually the best cost-saving method is to come to an agreement with your ex directly. If all correspondence has to go through your sol then expect a very large bill.

3) You could give a friend or family member''s address for correspondence.

Many thanks. I am completing form E and it asks my current address which I share with Ex sol. Can I omit this information copy of from E sent to Ex sol?

The problem here is that your current address may well be relevant to your disclosure. If for example you live in a house purchased with marital assets, or proceeds from the marital home, then that would need to be disclosed. If you live with a new partner then that would also need to be disclosed. I think the only circumstance that it would not be relevant, is if you are renting.

I think if you''re renting then you can just put "Renting locally" in the form E. This is what my ex''s sol did on D81 (a shortened form E) even though I really didn''t give 2 hoots where she lived. The rental amount may or may not be relevant in the financial proceedings but this should show up on your bank statements anyway, it shouldn''t be necessary to disclose your address.

How is your ex''s sol going to send you their form E though?

I have not yet asked ex''s sol about exchanging form E.
On a different note, my child lives with her but I pay through CSA (direct debit). When completing form section 3 do I need to mention child''s needs as he doesn''t live with me?. Similarly do I have to put capital needs when I know I don''t have enough money to afford to buy a home?
