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 FDR should have been tomorrow, however myself and stbx have managed to agree a Consent Order. FDR has been adjourned now for six weeks.
Consent Order went in at the last minute friday afternoon.
At this point full disclosure has been made via form E''s and both parties have filed these at court.
Judge looked at Consent Order today, prior to the hearing that was scheduled for tomorrow but will not stamp it as i had not filled in form D81.
All the information is already with the court in form E so my question is it the case the judge is just being pedantic or is this cause for concern in that she may not agree the order.
I have now sent a Form D81 to the court (i had not realised there would be a requirement to do so as form E had been filed)
Any ideas on how long i may have to wait to see if Consent Order has been approved?

thank you for your thoughts.

The judge is not being pedantic, if you lodge a Consent Order other than during a hearing D81 is actually required, so if you had the FDR and agreed ok no need, present a CO pre- hearing and you need the D81, if you call the court they should be able to tell you how long it should take, ish.
