Looking through the search queries that find their way to Family Lore I regularly come across the same questions coming up time after time. I will not (knowingly) be answering those questions again, and would refer to my previous Questions and Answers posts.
OK, subject to that point and, as usual, to my disclaimer (see right-hand sidebar), here are my responses to a few of the recent queries:
my husband wants half my pension as we are going through a divorce
He may be entitled to it, but all assets will be taken into account, along with other factors. You should seek specific advice.
can divorce petition service be dispensed
Yes. You will need to complete this affidavit (see the notes for guidance at the end).
Do you need a consent order for a divorce
No, but it is best to get a final financial/property order before decree absolute, in particular to ensure that pension rights are not lost on divorce.
why do I have to do a statement of information for a consent order
The court requires this so that it can ensure that the order it is being asked to make is broadly reasonable. The court is under no obligation to make an order merely because the parties agree to it.
can we have a clean break order without financial disclosure
You can agree a clean break without disclosure, but I wouldn't recommend it. You will still however need a consent order to give effect to the clean break, and the court will require basic information about each party's means, before making the order (see above).
How much is a consent order
The current court fee is £45. This is usually shared between the parties.
force ex to sigh [sic] clean break order
You cannot force them to sign. If they do not do so, then you will have to make an application to the court.
calculation of spousal maintenance uk
There is no formula. The amount will be based upon the means of the payer and the needs of the recipient.
can i force my ex husband to see his children
In a word: no. The court has no power to force a parent to have contact against their wishes.
is domestic violence a barder event
Extremely unlikely, I would have thought. Certainly, I am not aware of any case where it has been held to amount to a Barder event. To do so, it would have to fundamentally alter the basis upon which the order was made.
why i want to become a family lawyer
You're asking me? I've no idea - must be some kind of psychotic reaction.
