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.

I''ve completed the D8 form. Printed, ready for sending off. Can i just go down and hand this in at the court? Leeds being my closest one.

And do i have to pay the £340 there and then? Even if i tick 10.2. That the Respondent shall be ordered to pay the cost of this application? She said she would pay, but i''m not sure i should tick this?

I don''t have a cheque book are there alternative ways of paying if I''m down there in person?

many thanks!

Jon.

Yes you can take it by hand.

Yes you must pay even if your ex said s/he will pay.

You can use a card to pay, saves delays when using cheques anyway.

She said she would pay - do you have this in writing? Tick the box in 10.2 anyway, just in case she tries to change her mind. You lose nothing by ticking the box.

But yes as dukey says you must pay and she will pay you back (this becomes payable on absolute).

Cash cheque or card can be used, cash gets it done quickest.

brilliant thanks for the quick replies.

Not wanting to sound naive, i don''t believe she''ll change her mind, it''s all been amicable - i wasn''t sure if ticking it sounded a bit forceful and may cause delays? i think it''d be easier if i tell her, i''ve paid and to transfer me the money... or at least half of it.

thanks
Jon.

Well it''s up to you. But things can change in divorce especially when it heats up and the finances get discussed. The debt for costs is not payable until Absolute, and Absolute is often not granted until the finances are resolved. If the amicability dissipates during the financial negotiations (this is VERY common!) then you may wish you''d ticked that box.

there will no financials to negotiate, unless she invents some, but i can''t see her doing that. i understand anything can happen in this period,

Forms handed in, dropped her an email saying i''ve paid.

I''ll keep you updated on how it all goes. finger''s crossed :)

Even if there''s no finances, you need to dismiss all future claims against each other. This counts as a financial resolution even if no money changes hands.
