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.

Hi - I am trying to fill in form E - nearly there .. but I haven''t received 2 of the valuations for the house or my one pension cash entitlement figure ...

We are due to exchange on tuesday - IF I don''t have those things, do I wait?

IS it a legal requirement to exchange at that date or can it be a couple of days late?

I would also like it to be seen by my solicitor, so I can sign it etc ... she is away (!)

thanks for any advice.

Are you exchanging form E voluntarily or as part of the court process?

That doesn''t really answer the question. Is this a voluntary exchange of form E, or is it a court ordered exchange of form E?

If it''s for court then I wouldn''t worry too much, everyone hands in their form E late. Sometimes even the day before the FDR.

If it''s a voluntary exchange then just tell your ex or sol that you want to delay it a few days to gather the last few bits of info.

Not too worry confused, just so you know this is court, not informal, your form E is sworn and exchanged before the first appointment (FDA).

Hand over what you have on the date your supposed too, the stuff you don`t have just right "to follow" in the box`s, as Cookie said these forms are often exchanged late for many reasons, just do your best that is all you can do.

Thanks -

one more question .. don''t hold me to that.. can i put the possible cost of purchasing another house (even though i hope I won;t have to) including sols fees etc capital needs or do i put them into the costs of the sale of the property in section 2?
