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.

Hi,

My FDA will take place on 16-11-2020 on I'm working on completing the various documents.
form E is nearly done, so now I'm focussing on the statement of issues.

Should this be a concise document, trying to put everything on 1 page, or could I use 20 pages to discuss everything?

I've used the search function on the forum, and read through this post:
divorce.wikivorce.com/advice/financial/a...on-self-representing
However the link to section 25 statement example is broken?

My case should be fairly straightforwarded, it is mainly the sale of the marital home I'm looking for, which (if evenly split) should provide both of us around 120k.
As our incomes are now largely the same (even though this wasn't the case during the marriage, back then I was lucky and my salary was about double it is now) this 120k in combination with a mortgage of 120k should provide us with the means to buy a house at a reasonable distance from (likely) work.
