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.

Hi all
I met with my Sol last week and prepared draft ancil reflief affidavit.
Please advise what is the purpose of this and what should be included
My sol went through things very hastily
brief history marriage brief work history and overview of all assets acquired during marriage
I am unclear as how detailed this doc should be
Is this my opportunity to show court my contribution to marriage in terms of working history savings I acquired and role I had in family business
If so I am a bit concerned that my sol has rushed it!!!
Please advise 80s

Just be open and honest in this document. It is only a premlim. to set the scene. I just set down the history of the marriage, lifestyle, mortgage, house, children etc. It is no good quoting blame and other matters relating to the break up. It is just a briel outline/statement. The real information is exchanged vai what is known as a form E, which your solictor will obtain for you. Your X has to do this as well. Un this you have to lay your soul bare and fill all the information required for what is know as a first hearing before the DJ. Its nothing sinister just be honest. The DJ will take care of outstanding matters.

If you have any questions about form E or leading up to it, let me know I will gladly help. I m now on the FDR stage after 12 months. THe Form E looks formidable and needs a lot of information input/supply. You can get a copy from the RESOURCES section of this forum. Its a fair way for the DJ to decide the likely outcome. Chin up (I still here!!!!)
