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.

No, we''ve not taken the case to court yet. I proposed to my solicitor that we should terminate the endless and pointless ping-pong of letters and faxes between parties by our making an offer.

On 11th June I received an email from my solicitor stating:

"I have sent the attached letter to [name of solicitor redacted] with regard to our letter of 17 April 2012.

I would recommend if we did not hear from them by the end of this week we should issue proceedings within the Principal Registry to put this matter before a Judge."

In response to the letter he mentions in his email to me we received only a three-page letter of fantastical and utterly baseless new allegations. I''m unsure where we now stand on the matter.

I don''t understand but then I''m not an expert. Form A was filed last year (by you?) and you will have had a date for a first appointment. So you adjourned it? ignored it? What? You need to get into court and have the judge do what judges do.

Thanks, again, for the response.

Frankly, I''ve lost track of the matter. I simply see a dated PDF of the completed Form A on my hard drive. I see no further mention of it in correspondence from that time.

Yes, I''d like this to go to court as soon as possible. However, in receipt of the astonishing new claims made in response to our offer of a ''Clean Break'', I suggested to my solicitor that "We simply acknowledge receipt of the letter from [solicitor''s name redacted], and state that we now look forward to receiving the supporting documentation (bank statements, receipts, etc) of [name redacted]''s financial contribution to the marriage."

I am awaiting my solicitor view on the proposal.

I`m a little suspicious form A was actually filed, if it was then you would have a letter from court asking you both to complete form E a chronology form G ect and dates to file and serve along with a date for a first appointment, do you have any of the above?.

I completed and returned form E, with all supporting documents, in December of last year. I''ve not, however, had a Form G, nor a date for any appointment.
