Hi, thank you for your question. A D81 form is a simplified disclosure form and in most circumstances is used only where there has been agreement to settle and a consent order is submitted to court. A form E enables you both to give full and frank disclosure of all assets (which you need to do even if they were acquired prior to the marriage) and negotiations can thereafter commence taking into account factors such as pre-marital acquisition.

It is usual for a Form E to be used, not a Form D81 - the D81 is generally used for when you are both satisfied there has been full and frank disclosure and a settlement has been agreed as the Form E is much more detailed than the D81.
