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.

I am a LiP Applicant for my FDR on 12 August.
The court have asked that I prepare the court bundle.
How log in advance can I ask the Respondent to provide their documents so that I have time to process them? Ideally I would like them a week in advance as I need to provide them to the court 2 days before the hearing - would this be a reasonable request?

Thanks in advance.

Look at the order. It should set out timescales. You should have most of the documents well ahead of the hearing.

A draft index needs to be sent ideally a week or so before the hearing so your ex can ask for specific documents to be included.

Remember that court bundles must comply with Practice Direction 27a.
