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.

I wish to represent myself and I have revcieved an initial leeter stating the charges.

I want to respond to indicate that I do not wish to contest the charges but will not want to have them used against me in future.

1)Is there any sample wording somewhere that I can use - some sort of template? Can someone share theirs with me?

2) At what point must i suggest a sharing of court fees If I am being served. Should I wait until I am told to pay?

Please help

Only you, your ex and the judge really see the reasons. They aren’t charges and aren’t going to be used against you. If you don’t want to contest prolonging the process will only cost time and money

The allegations of unreasonable behaviour can be carried forward into other proceedings. For instance, if the allegations included a gambling addiction this could be cited in financial proceedings as a reason to vary the split of assets in favour of the petitioner.

If a respondent does not agree with the allegations but does not wish to defend they can state that they do not wish to defend the divorce, do not admit to the allegations but agree that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
