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

What is the start date for a sealed Consent Order? Is it the date the last party signed the document or is it the date it is sealed by a Judge?

Eg Consent Order signed by the respondent on 17/06/2021, and, sealed by a Judge on 23/07/2021. Does the clock start ticking from 17/06/2021 and financials must be finalised by 12/08/2021? Or is it 17/09/2021?

Just trying to tie up the timescales with the house equity transfer to me & buying out STBX.

Many thanks.

No. Consent Order’s just been submitted to the Court.

Can’t come into force until absolute granted so that’s when the clock starts ticking for anything that is time bound.
