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.

Consent Order - CTSC or local court?

I have a divorce case with Bury court and it was a paper based application as opposed to online application with HMCTS.

I now intend to send an application for Consent Order. I have been advised that the court at Bury is taking 6 months to process, but the CTSC (HMCTS) are taking 2 months.

Can I send my application to CTSC even though it is not an online case? I spoke to the court and they advised to send directly to court, while my a solicitor advised me that they have various clients where they did send the application to CTSC even though they had a paper divorce at a local court.

Has anyone been in this situation and were you successfully been able to send Consent Order application to CTSC for a paper based divorce?
