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.

If you applied for a costs order in the petition, a costs order will normally be made when the Decree Nisi is issued.

Not easily. It is commonplace to delete a claim for costs when applying for a Decree Nisi but not add a claim for costs. I would imagine you would have to amend the petition and re-serve it on the Respondent. That would require time and a further court fee.
