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.

it has been 3 weeks since duv nisi came through, I thought application for anc relief had to be sent in before a 6 week period elapsed as I thought my ex could apply for absolute then,as he said he would asap and acc to him as we'ed be no longer married I would have no claim against his pension etc.
I asked my sol 2day and he hasn't sent in anc relief form yet, saying as I was petitioner, I controlled timetable and my x cannot obtain absolute until 6 weeks plus ?6 months after it is granted.is this correct? it seems we negotiate ourselves 1st with our sols, hopefully getting a Consent Order that we both agree to, therefore need for a A form to courts not required.he did say if we can't agree, it then gets applied for.I need some clarification please from anybody who knows thanks

I am not a divorce practicioner and there are some posters on this site who are, so I may be corrected ; but I don't think I'm wrong.

The petitioner normally makes the application for ancillary relief in the petition itself, followed by filing form A. The Court cannot make an order until after the Decree Nisi and most orders do not take effect until the Decree Absolute.

Don't worry his pension is not safe whatever he may think. the financial settlement has to be either voluntary or decided in court but whichever way it has to be judged fair by all parties.

In fact once he realises this fact he will cry more than when England lost to Croatia the other night!!!

Best of luck B)

If you can reach agreement through negotiation there is no need to apply to court for ancillary relief, your sol can draw up a document and send it along with a simplified financial form D81 to be turned into a legally binding Consent Order by the court.
