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.

Hi peeps,
I was wondering if anyone can help me? I''m an LiP. I have to submit my statement,chronolgy ect to the cout by the 3rd of July 2012 My x has not returned any paperwork at all to the courts in the whole process including divorce my Decree Nisi was being pronounced today. With regard to the financial releif I informed the judge by letter yesterday that neither I nor the court have recieved the form E and explained that statement ect would reflect this. I have made a cock up I put the wrong date on the form E for the decree Nisi, but I understand that i can explain this in a letter, also I sent the form G back when I received the form E :SI didnt read it properly and thought it was an acknowledgement oppps can I resubmit this if I explain in the same letter it was a mistake?. Do I have to include in the chronology the first petion date and the amended Petition date and the baliff order and that they could not serve ect? or just the petition and decree nisi? also how the hell can I write a statement of issues? do I just put that no form E received? and in the qeustionaire do I put that I need the form E? and what happens when I get it do I have to submit all these documents again but as amended? I have read that what you ask for in the questionaire is the only paperwork that you can then ask for in the hearings but I dont know what other documents I may need:angry: Please if anyone can help as I cant find anything in the Ancillary relief handbook or online. I suppose this must be quite unusual :S

Which book do you have? if Roger birds work is way over the top for a newbie to this.

Ive sent a chronology so you know what you need for that.

Don`t worry about the wrong date in form E

Form G the answer is no your not ready so can`t proceed

Form H, your LIP so you don`t need it

Questionnaire can be done as you don`t have form E

The statement of issues is the important bit, use the wiki search bar to what it is and how to write it.

Regardless of what the other side do or don`t do you do what the court ask, file and serve by the date given, what you can that is.

I love Roger Bird''s book! It''s essential reading for me at the moment ... as you can probably tell by all the questions I''m posting.

(I know, I''m sad. I''ve been told before.)

I think his books are must haves for those keen to learn, if your brand new to it all it''s a bit ott though, it would probably leave most with more questions than answers, check out the chapter on short marriages for example.

thanks for your responses :)I have already filed the form g stating i will be in a position to proceed because I didn''t realise it was the form g I thought it was an acknowledgement to the attend the First appoitment, how do I change this to no Im not? and exchange it with my ex? I have looked for a statement of issues example for the case of not receiving a form e how do I state the issues if I dont know what order he is seeking and dont have any information on his finances ect? we split up 7 years ago this july so I don''t know how much he earns or what savings ect he has. I was going to put in a letter asking the Judge for Futher Directions on the matter of the statement of Issues and questionaire because I have no form E so the Judge can see I wont be able to file them, do you think this would be a good idea?
