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, I need to get my affidavit sworn (DIY divorce so no solicitors), do I have to make an appt at the court for the court officer to witness this does anyone know or can I turn up and hope to see someone? I cant get hold of them over the phone. Thanks, Sam

Good news the new D80 forms don''t need to be sworn, just make sure it is one of the new forms.

Did you send it to court before April this year?, if so then as I understand it it needs to be sworn, if after then it shouldn''t or indeed can''t be sworn, I''m not sure all courts are unto speed with the changes, call another court for advice.

I think it''s just a mistake on their part, should be easy to sort out.
