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.

He has received his Acknowledgement of Service and is completing it not defending the divorce, which is great, the next stage the form where is asks on the directgov site to choose a version of the d80 form there is one for adultery and one for unreasonable behavior separate, My divorce is on both these grounds which one should I attach to return to the court with his completed d10 and the d80? Someone mentioned the court would send me the correct one with a copy of hisd10 but the directgov website states I would have to pick the right one Myself from the drop down box?

They will send you the right one. You only have to pick one, if he does not return the D10.

Ok he has his form to send back we are doing it together as he is not very good at reading and writing, firstly a rather stupid question probably but it keeps mentioning claiming costs etc he already wrote a cheque for £340 and I sent it with the Petition in the first place am I right in thinking the divorce is only going to cost £340 plus the 45 for the Absolute document? We do not own a home together or have any financial ties like that, he stated he would not object to paying costs on form just wondering what costs??? thought the £340 was the costs?

Secondly Question 1B in which country are you?
it then has an a and b option and then says of which country are you a national
we simply thought United Kingdom? He is Jamaican, but has the right to remain and lives in England permanently? Is united kingdom correct?

Question 5 - He IS willing to admit to adultery however in the notes it says you do not have to if you do not wish, I obviously would prefer he admitted it and he does not mind however will this incur further complications? (is it a trick question)? LOL

and then the Question 6 do you object to paying the costs of the proceedings... he answered no, but like I said above is it not just the £340 he has already paid?

and one last thing he also received a letter in the pack titled:
what documents to send?
*One copy of the D10 - (We get that!)

*Statement of arrangements for children if applicablenow what does this mean? When I sent the divorce off I sent 3 copies of everything, therefore do the court not already have one? or does he have to send his copy or a copy of his copy in again? Is it applicable to him if he is agreeing with it?

Notice of acting - Just being on the safe side think this is not relevant as his not defending case?

Would be so grateful for a response ASAP as I have to get these to the post office tomorrow for same day delivery.

Thank You :laugh:

AND then sending it back says address all communications to the court manager and quote the case number
do I write the case number on the envelope next to the court manager?? Just dont want to mess up!
