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.

Hi everyone :unsure:- help needed again please.... I am self repping - my stbx is insisting that form E''s are completed and if I do not complete this I risk being taken to court for a resolution of financial matters. I don''t quite know what to do now - the house is up for sale (it has been for 18mths - no interest) - the sale of the property will vastly change our financial positions (as we have many debts joint and singularly) - the stbx is in a far better financial position thatn me - he has a solicitor - I don''t, no way can I afford it. Can I be forced to complete Form E? What relevance is there in agreeing finances before the property is sold? I have the children with me. (He also has a pension)?? Sorry about the long winded blurb - I''m confused/concerned

Found it.

He is asking to do this without court which is the best way to do it, if you don`t then he has no choice but to escalate the matter to court which becomes formal and you have to do as court ask (well order).

You should have whats called a Consent Order before you sell property so you actually have a legally binding court order that says exactly who gets what and when, without it you both remain open to claims in court later on.

So complete form E and exchange it and then try and make an agreement which will be used as the basis of a Consent Order.

Relax, when you have questions ask, if you get stuck ask, if no one answers call the wiki helpline, its not what your being asked to do that is hard its the situation you find yourself in, people become distracted and stressed and then the mind thinks right panic, it works at 50,000 MPH but achieves nothing.

Let me explain another way, i work with a guy who is 4000 years old, two generations between us, he has his office upstairs mine downstairs, but from time to time he will leave his door open and subject me to country and western music from lords knows when, lets say the 50`s, so when this happens i can be doing a simple task but all i can focus on is "you left me alone and blue................................" arrggghhhhhhhhhhhhh
