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 Everybody,

I've been granted 'decree of nisi' and I am in the process of doing the paper work for the Consent Order. My ex-partner and I have full agreement on division of our assets.

I would really appreciate some clarification on completion of some of the forms.

1. In the Form A , in the first section ‘Nature of application” on p.2, which box should I tick if I just want the court to approve the Consent Order?

[ ] to apply to the court for:
[ ] to proceed with the application in the:
[ ] divorce
[ ] dissolution
[ ] nullity
[ ] annulment
[ ] (judicial) separation
[ ] to apply to vary

2. And which of the orders should I tick? I read somewhere that I should tick all of them, but I’m not so sure as in our situation, there is a transfer of property rights (I guess it’s a property adjustment order) and a lump sum order.

Feel a bit confused with all the options. Would really appreciate some help.

Then just tick property adjustment order if thats what it is..

And tick the bit about it being a Consent Order. Court fee is £50.

Your ex should complete similar and mark for dismissal purposes only.
