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?

Hi All,

I hope you are all safe and well. First of all apologies if I have posted in the wrong place.

Quick background. I am helping my girlfriend who is Chinese and has had a lot of people taking advantage of her situation/lack of knowledge in this situation. She is having to represent herself, and I am the form filler outer.

my question is we have had her ex's form E. All the information is present, but, his claims on property values etc are majorly over estimated. We have all the documents and proof that this is the case (i am not saying it was intentional on his part). Do we send this back to his solicitor as part of a response questionair, or do we leave it for the first hearing?

Thanks in advance

This is the sort of thing I raised in my Questionnaire - my ex had "forgotten" to mention some assets and had undervalued others etc etc. I wrote all my questions down in the Questionnaire and we each submitted these to the Court for the FDA.

I'm sure others more knowledgeable than me will respond, but I understand that the thing to do is when the responses come back, if they are not satisfactory answers, then you compile a Schedule of Deficiencies, basically stating what you disagree with and why. I am currently working through my ex's Responses to my Questionnaire and compiling a Schedule of the points which I know are incorrect in his replies.

You can ask for a copy of any valuations on which the figures are based.

Disagreement about property values should be noted in the statement of issues. If there is no agreed value for the FMH, the judge at first hearing can order a valuation to be done, usually by a chartered surveyor with costs to be shared.
