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.

Ex was playing games (denying receipt of the divorce application) and eventually a deemed service was granted by the court. Decree Nisi has now been applied for.

Ex''s solicitor have been informed the deemed service has been granted - sent them a copy of the court order. They have have now written to me twice asking me to provide them with ''the acknowledgement of service''. Also, for me to send them a copy of the original application.

Why are they asking me to send them the Acknowledgement of Service, when they know full well there isn''t one (as their client claimed never to have received petition) and they no full well court has subsequently ordered service has been deemed? Am I missing something here?

I have actually misplaced my own original application. Am I right in saying it is not my responsibility to provide them with another copy - can obtain it themselves?

Many thanks

Tell them to talk a long walk off a short pier. By that I mean don''t waste your time and stamps replying. They had plenty of time to return the Acknowledgement of Service at the proper time and now suddenly want you to bend over backwards chasing papers for them? Hell no.

Thank you. Would love to say that in a letter but best to keep that quote to myself :-).

I am right in my thoughts, there can be no ''acknowledgement of service'' when ex claimed not to have received petition? That''s why courts ordered the deemed service to allow the divorce to progress.

I agree with Cookie, its done the court have accepted he did have the paperwork just didn''t bother to reply, ignore the solicitor, they are wasting your time and his money.

There is no AoS, you can``t have deemed service or need it if there is, a stupid request.
