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 have heard the form E's are not looked at until and if it goes to a FH my ex has lied on his and has not accounted for £44,000 of cash that has left his account, he's income needs and wages don't tally. so it seems we are all in the same boat with these form E's

Mine too lies and series of ommisions so far nothing been addressed, but as angel says until final hearing all financial docs are unseen by judge, so be like us and hold out the hope that judge has a bit of integrity

My x2b's form E is full of gaping holes, although it is evident where the holes appear. He has now tried to offer me a financial settlement (which is in fact laughable) so that he does not have to answer my questionairre in relation to his Form E and where a large amount of cash has gone to.

In court on 12th February for first appointment so can't wait to see what other lies will come out to cover his tracks. He forgets that I have lived with his lies for 11 years and that I am now well clued up on where his money is going. You don't live with a compulsive gambler and someone addicted to alcohol and not pick up on their habits with money.

Will be interesting to see what happens.

Thing is, knowing my x2b, he will take this all the way. Sadly, I do not think for one minute he will get the AR that he is asking for. That is not me being greedy for a minute; there are little assets to speak of. I have 5 children to support (as he clearly isn't prepared to). If it goes to the wire, the judge will see that he is a liability as far as money is concerned.

Well, we are all in this together.

Will see what happens in little over a week's time.

Watch this space!

Regards, Sarah

Are you sure the FDR judge doesn't look at financial evidence - ie only the judge at a final hearing will look at the evidence for what's put in form E?
It would explain a lot - but how can they talk about/guide the agreement at FDR if they don't check for themselves if the form E information is right?
Do they rely on self reps and solicitors to make sure there's proper disclosure?

Do you know what puzzles me....
Why have this ar process because nobody seems to have had a fair deal or satisfactroy result from it, other than the offending parteners who are not part of this site
Why us the ones who have been the underdogs,are we not being championed by the british and scottish judicial system
The law is an ass, and that is a very old adage!!!
Surely there must be someone out there who has benefitted and had fair dealings from the system and if so.......

Can I sue his solicitor as well as mine for not getting the information for pension sharing that's required under the law?
Is your solicitor responsible if there's wrong information in the form E at FDR/FH?
