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, think i am very nearly there regarding agreeing a Consent Order. Ex''s sol sent a draft copy which i agreed to every point except one. I am still awaiting agreement that consent order can be amended.
My question today is if Consent order has not been agreed by both parties in time for the FDR hearing which is next week, what happens in respect of this hearing??
I have chased ex''s sol to try and get an answer unfortunately he is not the most speediest of people to respond and currently i am awaiting a call back which i imagine will slip his mind like every other call back he has said he would reply to.
Is it possible that ex''s sol will ask for an adjournment of this hearing anyway and if so if negotiations fail how would i get it back on track within the court route?
Feel like solicitor is doing everything last minute and i have no control of the situation.

Thanks for any advice
