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.

From what i've read, (please correct where wrong) at the stage of Decree Nisi Pronouncement (to be renamed Conditional Order next April), this is the stage where you apply for a Consent Order to legally divide your assets/money/pensions, I think form E is the main part of this and you both fill one in and send off for a judge to say yes or no in regards to fairness.

As part of form E there is a requirement to provide 12 month's worth of bank statements, my question is from what date? is it from the date of logging the petition or the date of filling in the Form E? my basic maths and looking online tell me that the difference in these dates (getting to Decree Nisi Pronouncement from Petition date) is between 14-24 weeks, so a wide range.

My assumption is that it is as soon as you populate the form E as part of the Decree Nisi Pronouncement stage.

All above based off various resources that could all well be incorrect or out of date! so i'm happy to be given concrete facts :)

It's the last 12 months - as section 2.3 on page 6 of form E says

Documentation required for attachment to this section:
For each account listed, all statements covering the last 12 months.

Thanks for the response :)

but that doesn't clear it up (or am i being thick?)

'covering the last 12 months' so is it just 12 months from when you fill in form E? so if you fill in form e in January 2022 you give Jan 2021-Dec 2022, if you fill it in 2 months later you do Mar 2021-Feb 2022.

So the petition date or any other date proceeding all this makes no difference? it's purely on when you submit the form E?

thanks again :)

Yes its the date you complete form E, the petition date etc isn't relevant here for the purposes of disclosing bank statements and other financial documentation.

'covering the last 12 months' so is it just 12 months from when you fill in form E? so if you fill in form e in January 2022 you give Jan 2021-Dec 2022, if you fill it in 2 months later you do Mar 2021-Feb 2022.

If you complete For E in Jan 22, you would need to submit statements from Jan 21 right up to the date of submitting form E, so bank statements should go right up to the date you submit Form E, ie your most recent bank statement should reflect the amount you've declared in Form E.
