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.

Did you agree to anything in court? If you did then you may find an order is already being drafted. Were you given a provisional date for a final hearing?

If you did not agree then it is up to you to contact her/her solicitor with a settlement offer as outlined previously.

Once you have agreement you then need a consent order to be submitted to and stamped by the court.

No you will not receive the judges recommendations in writing, he has verbalised them to help you reach agreement.
Hadenough has given good advice regarding open offers. If you end up at Final Hearing the open offers will be seen by the judge, if your ex has refused them with no grounds costs are unlikely to be awarded particular if you have offered what was recommended. As hadenough says you could try a deferred sale but if you stbx doesn''t go for it state the property will go on market and proceeds split 50/50.

Yes you will need a consent order drawn up there is no getting away from that if you want complete closure and no future claims.

Well to b honest I got lost at some point but he said his piece n he said end of meeting n he said you need legal advice we haven''t discussed questions about the disclosure my ex queried a few things that need answers as I did n I suggested to ask again on her financial disclosure n the judge ordered me to do it by 24!july so I guess we still talking before the hearing I think we still at FDR if that makes sense

Dude, you really don''t have a clue what is going on, and you''re not managing to explain it to us very well. We can''t help if you can''t explain the situation to us. I can hardly even understand your posts due to bad grammar. I would highly recommend you get a solicitor. I would love to help you but I don''t think posting here is actually helping you very much. You need real life legal advice.
