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 was the respondent in the divorce Which was finalised in 2006 I want ti tie up the loose ends financially as it wasn''t done at the time of divorce ... Consent Order is agreed between us as being what was divided at the time of divorce and no further future claims to anything. Am about to send to court but just want to double check that even that though I''m the one instigating this now , am still the ''respondent'' on the statement of information paperwork - as I was in divorce case ?? And also form a ? Have been told to complete this ''for dismissal purposes only''. Am I the applicant or respondent on this form? And what box do I tick ? Confused !!!

Hi Pixiechick,

Welcome to Wikivorce!

Just checking you have already attempted mediation? You need to try mediation first before applying to the Court for AR.

Hi white rose

The ex and I are in agreement on the finances hence the Consent Order route ... but I was advised that as a matter of course ''form a'' still needs to accompany the D81 and the actual order and be sent to court ?

Extra confused now !

I would interested in a reply to this one.

My ex has made an application to Court but not on a Form A for variation of Sm and has named me as the Petitioner.

Do you always stay as Petitioner in subsequent cases at the same court or does it change depending on who makes the application?

Thank you xx

Sorry to confuse you - I didn''t know your circumstances.

Its great that you have agreed finances already.

Re:respondent or petitioner?

Found this on an old post.

if you are the petitioner... then that''s what you are irrelevant to what you were in the divorce.

Some courts insist that you use the terms Applicant/Respondent correctly in AR proceedings as these are separate from the divorce proceedings. The divorce proceedings have no bearing on the AR proceedings so this should not cause any difficulty.

If in doubt refer to yourself as ''Petitioner/Respondent''.
