What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

need some advise here.
My ex is paying me £350 a month for our son not done through court just him saying thats what hes happy to pay.He told me that csa told him this amount but he wont hand over a current wage slip or p60 so i can see im getting the correct amount.
From the figure he gave his sol which his monthly wage is 2477 child maintenance should be 93 a week or 8o because he has his 2 nights.Although he has him overnight he has no bedroom and i feed our child every friday because his dad doesnt pick him up till 6 so hes starving:angry:.
Can csa order a wage slip and p60 from him to check because i believe they take into account bonus overtime etc etc.

If you claim CM through the CSA then yes they will ask him for that information, however I dont believe that you can request they check a private arrangement for you.

He gets the overnight reduction irrespective of where your son sleeps - my ex sends the eldest to her mates quite frequently on his weekends lol!

And yes they take into account regular overtime or regular bonuses.

If you apply to the CSA they will ask the non resident parent for documentary evidence of their income and you are entitled to know the figure the CSA base their calculation on.

We included child maintenance in our Separation Agreement as part of the overall divorce settlement and that worked for about 6 years. Then inexplicably my ex stopped payment and I applied to the CSA.

In our case they were very efficient and as my ex didn''t provide them with the required information they obtained it from his employer and deducted the payments from his earnings all within about six weeks. I received payment a couple of weeks later.

I get mine via the CSA, in my case to be fair once they were involved my ex co operated fully with them, but its simple as he isnt self employed or anything. I had to involve them after recieving nothing for almost 6 months.

That said, I now get approx £167 per month for two kids - it doesnt go far !
