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.

My partner has just received her initial divorce petition from her ex. They are divorcing on 2 years with consent basis.

I will be going through my divorce soon and it will be five years without consent basis.

How much do the forms differ between the 2 year and 5 year divorces?

In particular Question 5 asks "do you give consent to divorce" - will this question be on my ex''s petition when I divorce her after 5 years?

Thank you.

The petitions are pretty similar, in fact it is the same form. The D10 (acknowledgement of service) will be slightly different. For you, it will not matter if your ex does not give permission, but you still need to have proof that he has received the Petition. That means either a returned D10 or a bailiff/process server or deemed service.
