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.

After several conversations with my ex since August he insists that he has signed and sent them?? well this morning i received a letter from the courts saying that they have NOT received the acknowledgement,and it can''t move forward til service has been acknowledge so now my next step is the baliff,which brings me back to my original question, Sorry to go on but its so frustrating:(

Don''t use a bailiff use a process server or enquiry agent, cheaper and better result, you will need an up to date picture and address details along with D8 and D10, the more information you can give the better.

I hate to be a pain but do you realise you will need an affidavit?, it''s not all bad but maybe call the wiki line and find out how it''s done, maybe tomorrow.

To be honest some judges are more helpful than others, strictly speaking the process is a right pain, it''s your job to provide two affidavits, one fom te server then one from you, there can also be a D11 application, call the line, don''t go to a high street solicitor though or they''ll take three grand from you.

The solicitor is unlikely to hold on to the acknowledgement. It is likely that your ex is giving you the run around.

I assume you are acting in person? If so, write to the solicitor stating as such and requesting the signed acknowledgement. Their response will guage what you do next.
