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,at my first hearing the judge allowed either party to file a narrative affidavit by a certain date, prior to the FDR hearing. My STBX has still not done so though i believe she will. The date has long passed, will ex still be allowed to file this affidavit albeit late and will the judge take a dim view of her not keeping to the court timetable?
I am still awaiting answers to my form E questionnaire which i should have received weeks ago. Again, will there be any penalty for this or is this normal practice?
My fear is that i only have a couple of weeks to try and sort out a reasonable proposal but find i am hampered by not having all the information. The information i am waiting for is critical in the big scheme of things.

Thanks

If it''s late, it''s still better than being ambushed with it at Court. Did the judge specify the subject matter of the affidavit?

I suspect that you could probably guess the sort of thing your wife is likely to be saying if she does file a narrative statement if you turn your mind to it. The judge will give you a proper opportunity to reply to it if it''s late.
