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.

Can anyone tell me, is it really not possible to apply for a pension sharing order without a solicitor? We''ve got this far by managing for ourselves, but seem to be falling at the last hurdle. We''ve got Decree Nisi and have filled out pension sharing Annex P1 and the D81 Statement of Information. I know these have to be submitted under cover of a proposed Consent Order, but after what seems like days online I can''t find any template or guidance for what this has to look like and include. Please can someone advise on a way to go it alone or a quick and cheap way to buy that service without any other advice? Is it really that complicated when we just want the courts to tell my employer to hand over some of my pension?

Lay people cannot write Consent Orders you must use a solicitor, this site offers the service for £139, you tell them what you agreed they then draft in and off to court it goes.

OK thanks - so what happens to the P1 and D81, do I submit those to the court separately or fill in again online here?

If you use the wiki service you deal with the solicitor directly, the solicitor will deal with the D81 and P1 on your behalf and also lodge the order to be sealed, it''s all part of the service.
