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.

Afternoon - just wondered if anyone knows which forms to complete and submit to Court to contest a Consent Order, when I am out of time, by a week? Would it be the standard D11? I didn't attend the hearing, and DJ has ordered a Clean Break. I now see R lied on his Form A about owning a house. Any advice would be most appreciated. Many thanks

Was it a Consent Order that was made? You can't contest a consent order as you agreed to its terms. What you can do it apply to set the order aside on the basis that the other side misled the court and the order made would have been different if the court had been armed with the correct facts.

Many thanks, Charles. I was absent from the virtual hearing, due to illness. I had informed the Court that I would appreciate it to be postponed, but to no avail: it went ahead without any input from me. One only has 21 days to appeal to have it set aside, so I was wondering if you could suggest some appropriate wording for my D11 draft order to ask for it to be set aside. The R 'forgot ' to mention on his Form A he owned a house, but then he is a dulplictous character! I'd very very appreciative if you could suggest the correct wording for my Draft Order and is it correct that submission of D11 costs £155? Many thanks: excellent site, by the way.
