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 each have to file and serve these documents. File = send to the court, serve = send to the other side.

The form G would have been sent with the notice of first appointment. It is headed something like response to notice..

As applicant (if you are both self representing) it is your responsibility to sort out the bundle. This has to be prepared in accordance with practice direction 27A. It is essentially an indexed and paginated bundle of the key documents the judge needs to see to understand the case. The index has to be shared with the other side in advance of the hearing. It is helpful to provide them with a full electronic bundle. At present courts are accepting e bundles.

The bundle gets more complex as you progress through the process.

Make sure you have read and understood any orders from the court so you know what you have to do and by when.
