What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.
The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.
A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.
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.
Again I think you are failing to understand. What problems do you think people can have due to Absolute being granted before financial resolution? There are hardly ever any problems caused by the absolute being granted, unless you remarry.
i cannot believe that a Absolute divorce can be granted without financial settlement... no wonder so many people have problems.
You cannot send a consent order to court until after you''ve got decree Nisi. I think I''ve told you this several times now.
anyway i wanted to ask if a decision is made regarding house, and consent order sent to court 4 weeks after i sent the knowledgement.. will it be looked at stright after, the decree nisi?
Both of you.
alos when the decree Nisi is granted.. will the court inform both of us or just the petioner?
If you have grounds, you can block the Absolute. If not then you can''t. Wanting to delay it, is not sufficient grounds. You must suffer some kind of financial disadvantage by the absolute being granted, to block it. For example death benefits of a pension.
to make sure we both sort out house, esp the other half.. is it possible to delay the absolute? so the house can be sorted.. and how?
No, you can''t. When you return the D10, your wife will file Directions for trial and then the decree Nisi will be granted. 6 weeks and 1 day after that she can apply for the Absolute and unless you have grounds to block it, it will be granted. But if she does not apply then it will not be granted. If she has not applied for 3 months after that then you can apply if you want.
like wise can i do the same before the Absolute is given.. what happens afther the decree nisi?
