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.

If the respondent ask for the Absolute there will almost certainly be a hearing in court, then you can put forward your argument to wait until the money side is agreed, if the judge thinks you could be disadvantaged by the absolute the judge will refuse it.

You can apply for the Absolute 6 weeks and one day from the date of the Nisi, he can`t apply for 3 months after the first date you could apply, in other words he must wait 4.5 months from the day of the nisi, The solicitor wont be wrong.
