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.

You should have a copy of the order made at the FDR hearing (if there was one) and/or subsequent orders which have the relevant Directions.

You can request copies from the court although these may cost you if they have been sent to you previously. My court charges £5 per document. If the document exceeds 10 pages each additional page is 50p.

One of the things that will be required for the final hearing is a trial bundle. Where there is a litigant in person (applicant or respondent) and the opposing party is represented by a solicitor, the solicitor has to prepare the bundles and provide copies to the court and to the other side. So, you should receive a full bundle from the other side although they may levy a charge for this.
