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.

The chronology is just an ordered list of major events such as:

Date 1 - met
Date 2 - moved in together
Date 3 - married
Date 4 - bought house 1
Date 5 - child 1 was born
Date 6 - sold house 1 and bought house 2
Date 7 - child 2 born
Date 8 - seperated - he moved to a flat

The statement of issues is a concise statement of the outstanding issues between the parties. This should focus on issues relating to the ancillary relief proceedings - not personal gripes or complaints. So stick to identifying the unresolved financial issues.

Vanessa,

There is a summary of what justification a litigant in person has to give for costs in the wikivorce divorce guide.

Look under 'Self Representation'<br /><br />Post edited by: admin, at: 2007/04/10 15:57

Your piece on self representation is a great help but could you please help me with the form g which needs to be filed at the same timeas the chronology etc. i believe it is about willingness to settle immediately but i can not find it on the court website so am unsure what to do.

Vanessa,

Were glad you liked the Self Representation section - we hope to make the guide better and more complete over the next few months.

We are happy to respond to your needs so we have added the court forms to the bottom of the section on Ancillary Relief - in the guide (incl. form G)

Form G is used to indicate to the court whether or not you are willing and able to negotiate a settlement at the first hearing. If you both are then the court may extend the first hearing to in effect become a Financial Dispute Resolution.

It is as much about readiness as willingness. You will need to have exchanged form E's and be comfortable that all the disclosure you require has been made. If there are any doubts on either side as to whether the other party has disclosed everything, or any unanswered questions as to the facts of the case, then this should be resolved before the FDR.

I think I've read too much information on divorce I seem to be getting confused! firstly I can't seem to fill in the form g you posted and secondly I'm not sure if I am meant to file one as well as husband as he is the petitioner. It is rather immaterial though as he has still not returned his form E. I intend to file chronology on time adding that I will submit the questionaire and issues when I have his form. I assume this is ok

The form G we posted is the only online one we could find and you would need to print it out (tippex out the names) and fill it in by hand.

If you don't have his form E yet and are in danger of missing your deadline to submit issues and questionaires then I would suggest that it does not sound like you are ready for the first hearing to be and FDR.
