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 Team,

I have proof divorce petition has been received by my wife, because we live in the same house and they (The Divorce petition) is sat in a prominent position, she has in fact read them as she challenged on a statement that we have not slept in the same bed for 8 years, when she claims she slept in bed with me for 4 hours about 2 years ago hmmm.

I have already filled in a D89 (papers to be served by court bailiff) but she has read the application form and said she will not answer the door).

I have heard I can fill in court affidavit to say they have been delivered to the house (as I live there with her)

Many thanks

Jonathan

My ex who wanted to divorce wouldn''t return any paperwork . In the end my solicitor applied to the court for deemed service giving evidence of the three addresses where petitions had been sent, and using the signed evidence of the registered delivery.I also enclosed a letter from his landlord confirming he was a tenant. I seem to remember that i also signed an affidavit to say that everything in the application was true.

Good luck. Remember there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Sent evidence proving that she the STBX had received the papers and the same time of submitting the evidence I filled in and swore in affidavit for the unreasonable behavior at the court.

about 4 weeks ago the Court sent a letter saying it is the judge has stated the Petition is deemed served, what happens now, do I wait for the Decree Nisi, I wonder how long it takes.

Many thanks

Jon

You need to complete a special procedure application to apply for the Decree Nisi.
