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.

Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Decree nisi granted. :0) Timescales?

Congratulations. If you are the applicant, either you or your solicitor should have received a simple form to apply for the Absolute. Once the finances are sorted it is possible to walk into the court office with the form (and the £45 fee) and walk out divorced. If the application is made by post obviously it will take a little longer.

I always found the HM Court site useful, there were leaflets for different steps of the divorce process.

If you have the money side agreed you will need a Consent Order to be sent to court and agreed before you apply for the DA, six weeks should be more than enough time to deal with the CO.

Hope yours is quicker than mine. Decree Nisi granted October last year. He is the Petitioner because he gets legal aid and I dont.
Hi solicitors are only just sorting out the Consent Order before applying for the decress Absolute :(
Like others have said yours shouldnt take long and you will probably be divorced before me :(btw mine has so far taken nearly a year!
