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.

Hello, Apologies if this has been asked before. Can anyone send me a copy of or a link to example Consent Orders ? Especially those that will dismiss pensions cliams etc?

Many thanks!

hi,

An agreement has been reached with the s2bx on the split of the assets, pensions etc and the consent/Clean Break is to have that ratified by the court. As petitioner I am going to prepare the order with the minimal information being supplied on d81. The Decree Nisi is to be announced in February and I want this to be drawn up and ready for submission as soon as nisi is pronounced.

It can be submitted before Nisi, but it will not be dealt with until after Nisi

If you lodged it now, the First Appointment will be in 12 to 16 weeks time

If you lodge it after Nisi, still 12 to 16 weeks

First appointment can also be FDR

Hi,

Well I didn't know I could submit before Nisi so thats interesting.

Maybe missing something here but waht is 'FDR' ?

Has anyone got any wording that can be used to dismiss claims and note tht the matrimonial home has been sold on an agreed 50/50 split ?

Thanks

You need to draw up a legally binding agreement, sorry but I am working on mine without legal assistance and hoping that will be acceptable by the court.

I won't post it as something could be wrong, best if finances are not an issue to let a sol know what it is exactly that you both want, then ask the sol to make it into something acceptable to the court.

I have had a quote of circa £500.00 and mine is extremely simple, just a matter of equity split in the FMH, that's why I am DIY'ing it

FDR - final dispute resolution - no further finances to be resolved, no queries on either side, no disputes on finances

You can ask the court to make the first appointment the FDR
