I have a question for a friend whose stbx solicitor wrote to say would you like to see the statement of arrangements for xxxx. He is nearly 21. Is this about money rather than contact. He has been at uni for a year and both equally supportive financially. Would this become part of a Consent Order? He has always paid half of everything for his son.
Thank you Dukey.
But what is it for? He isn''t living at home but in a rented flat paid by both parents whilst at Uni. I understand he needs a home to stay in when visiting. Does this entitle Mum to bigger share of settlement?
The SoA is just so the judge knows the circumstances of the family, in itself it has no effect on the division of assets and income if disputed, think of it as more of a fact finding exercise than anything else.
