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 wife''s solicitors sent me a draft of a Consent Order setting out dates they want me to comply with but it contains dates that are not suitable for me, they also told me if i did not respond with in the time stated in the email ( they gave me 2hrs 20 mins to respond) they would go a head and send the consent order to the court. Are they able to do this with out asking me for my dates and giving me such short notice to reply?. Also i live in Bulgaria and the day the sent me the order( yesterday) was the 1st day of a 2 day National Holiday here so there is limited chance for me to find a working inter net cafe, and as i am representing myself i am not sure if the court will accept the request?

Sounds like quite an aggressive move to me.

The court won''t accept a Consent Order that hasn''t been signed by both parties - the order is by consent, meaning that both parties are in agreement.

You should really get your own independent legal advice on the Consent Order before signing - Wikivorce offers such a service for £99.
