I think one huge flaw in the divorce system in the famously useless Court Order. Your solicitor draws it all up after lots of argument, and money, it is then stamped by the judge, and after that nothing can be done to make either party comply with it. Unless of course you have the money to take it back to court!!! What a futile system, the Court order should be monitored and parties should be made to comply by the court system. Solicitors have no clout whatsoever with that court order, but do they tell you that, no they just let you instruct them to write letter after letter, and get absolutely nowhere.
