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.

Hi everyone,

I am new to this site and wondered if someone could advise me on procedural matters for a Consent Order. All our assets including house and cars have been divided between us and we are both happy with what we have we just want to state to the courts that we dont want each others pensions or should I be lucky enough to win the lottery then my husband doesnt have a claim on it. What form do i need to submit first to the court and then any subsequent forms, also what wording should I use. We have done the divorce ourselves as it was very straightforward and we now have our Decree Absolute.
Thanks in advance for your help

Nikki

You can draw up an agreement between yourselves stating that neither wants any claim(s) against the other now or in the future.

You will need to complete 3 copies of form D81 - statement of information for a Consent Order - this just tells the court of your current brief financial status and if you intend to cohabit or remarry.

You will need to ask the court to rubber stamp your agreement and providing all is in order a District Judge will do just that.
