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.

I am self representing and I have completed the First Directions Appointment and have the judges approved questions for both sides. Something however has just come to light that may well impact the outcome quite substantially. Does anyone know how I go about adding further questions in an official capacity? Do I need to write to the presiding judge? I assume it will be better to have the questions and hopefully answers in place before the FDR.
I can drop the questions to my ex’s solicitor, but I doubt very much they will want to either answer the question or have the request in front of the judge. Unfortunately I can find plenty of stuff on the process for these hearings, but nothing covering adding further questions officially.

There should be provision for additional questions to be raised after answers have been exchanged. You should go ahead and ask her solicitor anyway. If they won't answer then you can make a D11 application to ask the judge for directions. You would need to explain why the question is important. If they agree the judge can order that it is answered.
