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 Lizzi

The Decree Absolute will simply state that the marriage of Mr Smith and Mrs Smith, married at X church/venue on X date is now legally ended.
Anything contained with the Petition isn''t included on the Absolute as the grounds are there to demonstrate to the Court that the marriage has irretrievably broken down, which is the only legal reason for granting a divorce.

Thanks RubyTuesday,

So should either of us remarry, the certificate will simply state previous marriage disolved.

I ask because he is getting arsey about the UB (even though painfully true) I wanted to know if that would ever show on anything in the future so I can passify the idiot, even though his antics should be plastered on billboards!:S

He always has the option to defend the allegations of UB in the Petition but still consent to the divorce, meaning the divorce will still proceed as uncontested.

Defending the allegations but consenting makes no difference, other than that the respondent may feel they have won some sort of moral victory...

Save the billboards until everything is done and dusted ;)

So if he stupidly decides to defend the UB allogations but not the divorce itself what would that actually mean in terms of the time it takes for the divorce to go through? In fairness i really watered down the reasons stated on the Petition.

He has threatened to cross Petition on grounds of my adultery, if that were the real cause for the split the adultery would have had to had been prior to the split and not after.

All i''m concerned with is getting divorced from the neanderthal as quickly as possible
