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.

Hi all,

I received a D8 form today which is a "draft" copy from my wife''s solicitor. I am ok with the reason for the divorce etc and will not be contesting this, but, there is a section (Section 10 "Prayer").

In this section, there is the following boxes in part 3 that have been ticked by my wife or her solicitor:

"3 Financial order (if you wish to make an application for a financial order)

(a) {Ticked} that the Petitioner may be granted the following financial order(s)

{Ticked} An order for Maintenence pending suit/outcome

{Ticked} Periodical Payment Order

{Ticked} Secured Provision Order

{Ticked} Lump Sum Order

{Ticked} Property Adjustment Order

{Ticked} Order under section 21B, 25B or 25C of the act of 1973/ Paragraph 15, 25, or 26 of schedule 5 to the act of 2004 (pension sharing order)


Can anyone tell me what these ticked boxes mean?

It''s standard practice to tick all but MPS, just don''t worry about it, it in no way means your ex is asking for any of those orders, it''s just the way the form is completed.

Cheers for that. Quicker response than my solicitor! And cheaper! I''m still waiting their response from the email I sent yesterday. Frustrating thin is, is that if they explained things then I wouldn''t have to ask questions and have to pay £18 everytime they reply to my emails...

Feel free to ask here, there are a number of solicitors who answer questions along with other professionals and of course others who have done it and know the ropes.

Thanks "Big One"... I think sometimes solicitors forget that they do this thing day in and day out yet for most of us, it''s virgin territory.

I can cope with the stress of divorce, it''s the cost that is killing me and having to ask what might me silly questions is a costly affair when they charge me for every email and minute to prepare it! This site is great.
