– Order for sale – where the property specified is to be placed on the market for sale under the terms of the order, such as within 56 days of the date of the order.
– Lump sum order – where one party is ordered to pay the other a lump sum of money by a specified time or following a specific event.
– Maintenance – regular payments of money by one party to the other, also known as Periodical Payments.
