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.

Have know recieved my ''Certificate of entiltlement to a decree''
In it it states the following ''to an order thet the Respondent pays the costs of the Petitioner. I take it this means i being the R will have to pay all the cost? I did state in form D10 that due to matrimonial debts that i was now in a IVA and registerd insolvent and unable to pat all the cost.
I cant afford to pay all cost what is my position?

It means the respondent has been ordered to pay all the costs of the actual divorce. The finances are treated separately and each party pays their own costs.

The Petition fee is currently £340 and the Decree Absolute fee is £45. If your wife used a solicitor their costs are likely to be a further £600-£1000 + VAT. So, around £1100-£1600 all in.
