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.

I had to pay the lot in one go and up front, so I assume it is the same for you.

It''s paid upfront in one go, you could try EX160 fee remission to see if they will reduce or even do it free.

Hey there, I have my D8 and EX160 and I planned on filling them out and whacking them off tomorrow - but I have one question now..

When do you actually send the EX160? Should it be sent with my D8, or do I send it when I receive a bill, or.. yeah, I have no idea.

I contacted a few free legal aid solicitors but have heard nothing back from them and that was two months ago. It really sucks to have to do this with no help at all.

[note: I cannot use the telephone, so the little thing on this website is not useful to me, sadly.]

Send in the completed EX160, along with the relating paperwork (bank statements, etc) when you submit your D8 to Court.

Sorry that you can''t use the helpline, but you will get plenty of great advice and help here on the forum :)

Okay, so as I understand it:

Fill out THREE copies of the D8 form, provide marriage certificate.

Fill out ONE EX160 form, provide supporting documents.

Send all to nearest court that deals with divorce.

~~

Have I missed something?

Also I noticed on the Direct.gov website..

They will also get a ‘notice of proceedings’ (form D8) and ‘acknowledgement of service’ (form D10). They have eight days to fill in the D10 form and return it.

My ex-partner actually lives in Florida now, eight days seems a little tight.. anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks!

Don`t worry the 8 day rule is quite flexible, now the bad news, i was talking with a solicitor yesterday who said the ex160`s were being rejected, one yesterday was a single mother living on benefits and she was still refused, i hope it goes better for you though.
