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.

We have reached a settlement ahead of FDR and ex's solicitor has provided a D81 application form for my signature.

She has used the figures from his form E (Aug '20) in his column. Should I ask for updated ones to be inserted?

He will definitely have increased capital in terms of savings over the last 8 months, as have I.

The form includes a "Statement of truth" and a declaration that I must sign that a)I believe that the facts in the statement are true and b) that I've made full disclosure of relevant facts.

It shouldn't affect the overall basis for settlement but why should I declare current figures if he's using 8 month old ones? I'm LIP but if I was legally represented would they advise me to sign?

i won't be much use to you except my partners ex is using some figures that are now 3 years out of date since form E, such as the CETV on her final salary pension and her salary, but has updated her debts and her savings which have 'been spent 'in those 3 years. Our solicitor doesn't seem interested and is keen to get the Consent Order signed and sealed.

Personally i'd ask to have the figures updated.

Thanks for replying.
I did query this with his solicitor and she replied as if I'd only questioned the CE figures (which are actually the most up to date as we've just had a pensions report done!) so looks like she's dodging the issue.

I think I will just input my own current asset, liability & income figures on the form and note in the email to her that I've done but note my ex's figures are from the form E last August.

If your savings have gone up then why not input the savings as at the time of the form E, the same as your ex has. My partner was expecting the old figures to be used but she has mixed them to suit and to her advantage. It seems very unfair to me, partners Solicitor did mention this to the other side but they ignored it.
