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 all, i have my first hearing approaching in the next couple of weeks. Can anyone tell me if the judge will want to see evidence of all proposals i have sent to my stbx''s solicitor that she has subsequently declined?
All offers were made without prejudice.
Still waiting for exchange of form E though the date for complying with the court timetable has now elapsed.

Thank you

Hi there,

The Judge will want to see offers that you have put forward at the FDR hearing. The first hearing will be used as a sort of Directions hearing. I.e form E''s to be exchanged by x date questionnaires to be served on the other by x date. REturn to court for First Appotinment on X date.

Why have form E''s not been exchanged yet?

Yes - The judge will utlise the FDR to provide an indication as to how the case will be decided if the matter was to proceed to trial. The discussions had on that day are not dislcoseable at trial.

Perhaps you should write another letter to the solicitors to say that the date has long passed for exchange of form E''s and you will need sufficient time before the first appointment to draft your questionnaire -s o when can you expect to receive their form?
Good luck

Yes i will be doing that. As of yet the solicitor has not asked to use the FA to include FDR, but i assume i am correct in saying if i do not have all the information required i can say that i am not happy to combine the FA with the FDR.
From what i can gather it appears form E''s are rarely exchanged on time.
