I'm looking for some assistance in filling in form D81 - Statement of Information.Basically, myself and my ex have agreed that all equity from the matrimonial home will go to her - of which there will be about £40,000 (the property is worth about £155,000 and is presently on the market) however beforehand, I am responsible for mortgage payments. There is also another property which we jointly own which is tenanted. This second property will remain jointly owned by the two of us until there is enough equity in the property for my ex to get her investment from.We have a child for whom I'm paying regular maintenance to plus I've also agreed with my ex to provide her with some support money.I have no pension to speak of, the only other income besides my salary is the rent after the 2nd mortgage has been paid.I'm just not sure what numbers I put in what boxes on the D81 form. Do I literally split everything down the middle? There are no boxes which allow me to indicate how much I'm already paying out to my ex in terms of support payments (and no where to indicate how hard it is for me to keep my head above water!).If anyone could provide some assistance, I'd greatly appreciate it.Thanks in advance,K
HiThis form is a statement of what assets there are - the Order states how they are going to be shared between you.For the assets that are in joint names the value should be split between you.The income area is for the actual income you each receive - not how it will be shared between you - that is or should be in the orderClaire

HiThe net figures are divided in two and you put half on your side.The maintenance and support payments are not put on the form.Claire
HiIt would be help for to annotate them so that the court understands what the assets areClaire
Hi You put the net figures in - so put those details in the extra information section Claireclaire41107.4335258449

Thank you ever so much for your help.
