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 all,

Wondering if anyone can help with how to phrase the statement of case section for divorce based on two years'' separation. How much or what kind of detail do they need? Here is what I have drafted so far, but not really sure if it is too much info or not enough. Any suggestions?

Due to ongoing marital discord the Petitioner and respondent agreed to separate. The petitioner moved out of the marital home to a separate flat in February 2010. After a few months it was determined that the marriage was over and the respondent also vacated the marital home. The petitioner and respondent have had minimal contact since. Both parties consent to a divorce based on two years separation.
