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

My x and I are self repping amicably, i am acting as Petitioner and we will be looking to arrange financials via a Consent Order to which we have both agreed the terms but not completed.

We have equal residence with both children and are not persuing spousal or child any payments against each other for the childrean as we both work and are happy that we are covering our own costs.

Do I really need to tick all the boxes in parts a & b as many seem to refer to here. What happens if i dont ( guessing that the respondent could if i dont and i will negate any right)

We really dont want the courts settling things and just want to get divorce forms in and then the consent to follow and to be bound in the NISI...

FIONA if you are listening ...help please..others your experienced words of advise please

PS IF i tick all when do we tell the courts that we want to file for a consent..

Yes you tick all the boxes, but it doesn''t mean the court will settle things. lt just means all the options are left open and then when the consent order is sealed future claims are dismissed.
