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.

In the process of getting Consent Order drafted. Both parties agree not to make any claim on each other. Do we still have to declare our finances if we are already agreed?

Both parties know each other''s finances inside out and are happy not to make a claim on each other, but the solicitor is saying we can''t do the consent order unless finances are also declared to the court.

Is this correct?

Many thanks

Limited financial disclosure is required in order for the judge to see that it is a fair settlement. You can do this by completing form D81 which is not as involved as form E.
