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.

Drop the other side a note asking them to confirm that they have no questions to raise. Ask them if they are content to agree the Statement of issues and chronology.
In practice these documents can be produced right up to the hearing without penalty. If no questionnaire has been provided a short time may be given by the judge to allow it to be produced - a couple of weeks or so.

Thanks so much appreciated :)

The likelihood is they will not respond as my wife has a McKenzie friend who has left everything to the last minute, and is non responsive to questions.

Additionally, it states on the Notice of First Appointment that by a specific date you must provide the Court (and the legal representative of the) other Party
A concise statement of Issues between you and the other Party
A Chronology
A questionnaire
Notice in Form G

Does the following requirement only apply to me, and not the other Party? Could I also submit documents at the last minute without penalty?

Thank a self representor getting help from a friend :)- CT

form E has to be exchanged and filed with the court.
There is no imperative for a simultaneous exchange of the other documents so you should send to the other side whether you have theirs or not. Let them be the ones to annoy the judge, not you.
