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 previously provided extensive discovery. All usual bank statements, CETV, receipts re expenditure, income/outgoing etc.

My solicitors are now asking me to provide up to date discovery for hearing in sept. How many times do I need to keep providing stuff. My last cetv was dated Jan 2012,. Bank statement up to Dec 2011. Are these still not valid?

Btw. Stbx not provided full discovery from first time round even after court order!

Sadly there is one rule for us and one for them!

It is better to grit your teeth and comply, though I would hold fire with your cetv (it would cost you to get another so soon), I was told I had to update nearly everything we had a hearing & did so to stay on the right side of the court.

(Its just follow on statements from date of last ones)

Your cetv should be OK - pension providers usually charge for more than one per year so you should be OK with that until the end of the year. The other stuff has to be kept up to date for every hearing. It''s a complete pain but does mean that if you have had to live off savings it is obvious.

I will provide only bank statements not cetv, no problem. Nothing to hide just fed up with constant copying etc when stbx provided hardly anything & spending like a lottery winner!... . I hope judge will take this lack of information on his part into into consideration.

Thanks all.
