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 you have a solicitor they may not speak to you, generally that will be the first question they ask and when you say yes i do they will tell you to ask the solicitor.

Your case number is the same as on any of the paperwork from court, so you could try just call and say can i give you my case number to see when the Nisi will be decreed.

No harm in trying and no they wont mind.
