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.

my understanding is:
if the grounds are for 2 year separation the petition needs to be acknowledged, so if it isn't, then getting it "deemed as" is a solution.

the other points, i believe, are correct - if i'm wrong, i don't have poppy's excuses!

I don't think you can have a petition for divorce on the grounds of 2 years separation with consent UNLESS it is signed and acknowledged - thus showing consent - so it can't be 'deemed' as being served because serving isn't the problem, the consent is...

My Nisi was granted 10th September (Application was Feb 2008) he now has to wait six weeks and one day before he can apply for Absolute.

It should be advised that Financials should be sorted BEFORE the Absolute is granted; otherwise things can get complicated! (If she's being awkward at this stage; you might be in for a long wait)
