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.

Have just received ex-husbands form E bundle. There are several things that i''m not happy with, and will raise this with the Court, but could anyone tell me please, with regard to copies of his bank statements - he has only supplied a monthly sheet which simply shows the balance total for each month i.e. total money in/total money out -dating back 12 months - and not full, detailed statements. I supplied full statements-details of all my transactions etc. Can he do this? Surely, like I have done, he has to supply details of transactions? Any advice please?

Hi aggiedo,

I do beleive that any issues regarding the form E can be raised as a supplemential questionnaire. If you feel you need to see the detail for whatever reason then you are entitled to request it. This can be raised at the hearing and the judge will either accept this request or not.

Are you self repping or do you have a solicitor?

Hi Aggiedo,
Is it possible your ex has something to hide? Everyody knows what a bank statement is and he hasn''t supplied it. If it''s a savings account with no transactions then I guess it wouldn''t matter. But the point of providing statements is so that the other side and the court can examine them and see where the money is going and how much. I assume you''re going to have a first appointment and he should then be directed to provide them and then you can question them after that I would hope.Good luck.

Thank you so much Hereshopin and survive for your replies. Yes, it''s definitely a bank account..and I also think that he is hiding something. His figures just don''t add up and he hasn''t supplied half the things he''s supposed to..not only no full bank statements, but also no paperwork relating to his pension and savings, no house valuation etc. He''s got a solicitor ....I will be self repping as I can''t afford a solicitor.
I have to file with the court(and my ex) by 10th April, amongst other things, a questionnaire setting out any further information and documents I require-so I shall flag up the missing papers here. I also have a ''Notice in Form G'' from the court which has to be filed on 10th april also and asks whether i will be in a position to proceed at the First Appointment on 24th april with a financial dispute resolution appointment. Would I say no on this form, and that I''m not ready because of the insufficient paperwork supplied with my ex''s form E? I would certainly want sight of the bank statements etc. prior to attending the first appointment.
Thank you again.

Then yes, I am surprised that if he has a sol that so much is missing, although it it normally the case that they don''t submit everything, especially if you feel they are hiding things.

I would say then that you would not be ready due to imcomplete finnancial disclosure.

Yes, I will say I''m not ready and request the missing papers - The more I go through the papers, the more the figures don''t add up. Thanks very much for your advice.
