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, many thanks for reading! Well, just about to start walking this rocky path since I can not keep putting it off forever! So will be submitting my D8 this week. Thing is I can not fit my UB reasons in the small box provided! I know form is designed to ensure the P keeps it short, but I have culled and culled and still can''t fit my reasons in! So does anyone know how I add a continuation page?

Sorry, daft question, but I don''t want it being sent back due to some minor technical error. It''s hard enough to know if my wording of the UB reasons will be ok!!! If I post them on here, would anyone be kind enough to give their opinion? Would be most appreciated!

Thanks everyone, in advance!

Just be careful don`t write an essay, in section 6 write "please see attached MS1" MS1 is Mrs sadness document 1, your initials and the number 1, staple it to the back of D8.


Ask the clerk to check D8 don`t just post it or leave it, or call the wiki line so they can check its right, if its not they send it back and charge you £90, oh and they probably wont tell you whats wrong.....................and it needs to be marked as amended, so the golden rule is if your not sure ask.

Err i forgot to say head the reasons with "MS1", and double space the reasons, remember what is important to you is not to the judge all the judge needs to know is the marriage is over, not an in depth synopsis, it sounds very cold but judges are super busy and time is always short, five or six reasons is all that is needed.

Many thanks for your reply Dukey. Yes, by my previous posts on here, I can be a bit verbose at the best of times - though I like to call it friendly and chatty (!) , but have heeded the great advice on here re keeping my UB reasons as succinct and as factual as poss and have culled out unneccessary emotion - well, as much as I am able between the tears!

I am so frightened of him - incidences of DV in the past -and he will react to receiving my Petition. Am seriously thinking of trying to get a non-mol order - just an undertaking that he will keep away from me geographically and desist from sending me nasty emails would be enough - so I don''t need power of arrest attached to it... however, from what I read on this fantastic site, even just getting an Undertaking will still mean I will have to see him for a hearing for this. Think I''d rather put that off until First Appointment when I can ask court staff to keeep us in seperate areas whilst waiting to see the judge.

I have the FM1 since mediator deemed his behaviour so bad there was no point in mediation. ( I showed her documentary evidence - if that helps anyone else out there in same boat where mediation is not an option!

Anyway, I am rambling on - yet again - I appreciate your advice, Dukey. This site has been invaluable to me as a LIP and up the creek with out a paddle.... he has been dissapating marital assets too, both throughout the marriage and definately since our seperation, but how to prove? No chance, though am awaare of S37, but unless one knows where he has stashed the - er, OUR money, what is the point? This man had at least 8 bank accounts back then, made himself voluntarily unemployed as soon as he got whiff that divorce was on the cards....

But hey, one day at a time - for now, I just need to get my D8 submitted, for the relief that it will be court-timetabled will be immense.

Will go quiet for a few hours now, to work on trying to re word my UB reasons to an acceptable level so it does fit in the box - at this stage the standard of his behaviour only needs to be ''enough'', after all! When I do my Form A, I may have my chance to say a bit more and how he effected my health, etc etc..

But I so appreciate the fast response, Dukey and to any others who may reply after this.

Right, off to do battle with my D8 then! Thanks again! Great site!
