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.

The judge will only notice this if you point it out to him or her, particularly at FA or FDR. They don''t really have time to go through the papers particularly carefully. You need to make sure that your barrister (or you, if you are self-repping) points this out in their opening statement.

best wishes,

Thank you sexysadie, and all who have commented on my post.
The point is i want this messy horrible business to end at the next hearing, the FDR.
If it goes to final hearing, the cost implications are not worth considering....Barristers etc.
So what you are saying is that i have to instruct my solicitors that they have to impress upon the judge this piece of info.
Thanks.....any other info will be gratefully appreciated.
