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.

Hello, the petitioner can still apply for the absolute, but will need to submit a D11 form Explaining why it's been more than 12 months after the date of the Nisi.

The respondent can also apply, but there is an additional fee of £155, and a short hearing will most likely be listed as the judge will want to know why the petitioner hasn't applied, and if granting the absolute will be financially disadvantageous to either party.
