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.

That was for a straightforward "easy" Consent Order with no hearing required.

If you need to have a Consent Order hearing I guess the judge will inform you and a date has to be set. So I imagine that it would take longer and would be dependant on court timetables etc.

It may be that the judge doesn't need to speak to you (even if it is complex) - as long as it seems fair?

Best of luck.

the solicitors have asked for the hearing before the judge so I suppose I shall just have to wait to see how long it takes, unless anyone can give me some advise?
