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.

Hi everyone

Not sure if I''m posting in the right section because I haven''t been on the forum for a while...
My problem is that I was granted the Decree Nisi 2 yrs ago and never applied for the Decree Absolute. Now I want to do so but I''m just not sure what to do with the D11 form. Questin 3-what do I put there?( and at the bottom of that section what do they mean by "Please attach a draft copy of the order you are applying for."???
Also Question 10:What informaton will you be relying on? which box do I tick?
All I want is to finalise the divorce...There are no children involved and no finances to be taken into consideration.
Please help!

I don''t believe you need a D11 for this. You simply complete your D36, and attach a letter explaining why it has been so long, and confirming that no reconciliation or cohabitation has taken place in the time since the Decree Nisi was granted.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply...I was given both forms at the court and told to fill them out. Question 3 asks:What order are yo asking the court to make and why? Should I just say that I want to apply for the Decree Absolute? I''m not sure if they want me to put details there about why I waited so long to request it.
I did have a relationship with my wife during that time for about 7 months but we didn''t live together at all. Now we haven''t been in contact since January and the marriage is definitely over...

Hum, what grounds did you use? I think having a 7 month reconciliation would usually mean you have to start again because the grounds are no longer valid.

Well, I broke up with my partner who was the co-respondent (adultery case) and then I started seeing my wife again for a while. Now, I''ve been back with my partner(co-respondent) for the past 6 months again. I don''t know where that puts the divorce process. I think that I will have to set a date to see the judge (with my wife) and he will decide what to do....Just struggling with the form though. It''s all a bit of a mess now and you may be right that I have to start it all over again...

The order your asking for is Decree Absolute, you rely on when you sent in the D80 and D84, with any luck the judge will allow this to be done on paper, that said you may end up needing a short hearing in court.

Thanks for the info....will probably end up at a hearing though if my wife disagrees with anything. Does anyone know what will happen if we appear before the judge and my wife disagrees with everything I say? I think she might do that just to be spiteful. I don''t really blame her for taking the moral higher ground, but I think it''s pointless to leave the marriage hanging like that...
