Available to pre-order

Acting in matrimonial finance matters requires a precise and focused approach to the preparation of documents and evidence. This toolkit contains over 30 template documents, with guidance on how to tailor each one for different types of cases.

This second edition has been updated to take account of recent changes, including:

  • introduction of MyHMCTS, the digital portal
  • the Efficiency Statement and associated forms
  • standard orders
  • introduction of no-fault divorce provided for in the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020
  • guidance on social media use
  • use of arbitration and mediation
  • Pension Advisory Group’s latest guidance

The comprehensive and reliable templates cover every aspect, from issue to final hearing, including guidance on how to draft the Form E and letters to settle to avoid the final hearing where possible.

All the template documents are available to download for ease of customisation.


This toolkit makes a worthy addition to any family law team’s library. (Review of previous edition).
