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.

Hello! I would be very grateful for some help completing Part 3 of the D8 form and can''t seem to get an answer anywhere else.

My question is this: My ex(the Respondent) is Brazilian, born, resident and still lives there.

I (the Petitioner) am British born and currently live in between Britain and Brazil (I work in Brazil) but spend a good couple of months a year in the UK, where I also have a house. We last lived together in Brazil, but registered our civil partnership in the UK.

Which part do I complete? Am I correct in thinking I am ''domiciled'' in the UK, and should complete this section:

''The court has jurisdiction other than under the Council Regulation on the basis that no court of a Contracting State has jurisdiction under the Council Regulation and the PETITIONER is domiciled in England and Wales on the date when this application is issued'' ?

or should it be the second part which does not include the part about the ''Council Regulation''?

Many thanks for your help!
