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.
It is no more hassle to do it after the DA, and the other half cannot cause any more problems after the DA than before. You really need to understand that DA does not affect the procedure for financial resolution in the slightest.
i do not want to do it after the DA and it more of a hassle and then the other half will just mess about and cause problems.
Well, you can either (a) do the financial side of things sooner or (b) delay the DA.
so basically how can i get the financial side of things sorted before the DA is given..
The judge doesn''t make sure anything is sorted. The judge only gets involved in finances if he is asked to get involved in finances. That means an application for Ancillary Relief needs to be made. If that has not been made then the judge will not do anything.
doesn''t the judge make sure the proerty is sorted? cuz on the divorce form d10 the other half has just ticked property...
Even after Absolute, you need to sort finances. If your ex will not negotiate a consent order voluntarily then you can apply to court to set a fixed timescale.
once the divorce is all done and over with the other half wont give a cr** and waste time..
You can negotiate, agree the terms and write it up whenever you like. But it can''t be stamped by the court (become legally binding) until after Decree Nisi.
now my question, is it ok to do this before the nisi? will there be any problems?
