Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:

-Do you mean that you have filled in the D81 (financial information sheet) form?

-Has an agreement now been reached between you and just an order is required?

I am doing the divirce and the order through divorce online and they have marked it as received on the 13/9

If an agreement has been reached then you can rely on that agreement. There should have been disclosure of your finances prior to negotiations to settle the matter and just because you list your finances in the D81 form does not mean he can claim more money from you. The court requires this information from both of you in order to check that the settlement you have both agreed to is a fair settlement in comparison with the finances you both have. You should be aware that you must be fully honest in the D81 form as if it is found that you have concealed or misrepresented your positions, there may be grounds for him to apply to court to vary or discharge any order.

I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you

If there are to be any major changes to finances there is a section in the D81 to detail this.
