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.

Hi,
I have searched the internet and can''t find the answer to my question.
The ex has married recently. His maintenance is paid via attachment of earnings. He demanded a DNA test which proved he must pay.

Does the amount get recalculated because he has remarried?

Thanks if anyone can help.

In a word: No.

CSA goes off your exes wages alone regardless of his marital status.

If there are children in his marital home and he informs the CSA of this the amount of maintenance he has to pay will go down. I think this also works in the opposite scenario where if you have more children in your home his payments would go up slightly, but i''m not 100% sure of this.

Hi

If his new wife has a child land it is living with them or they go on to have a child of their own he will be reassessed and the CSA amount will be recalculated and reduced to reflect this. If there are no children then no the amount he pays will stay the same.

No. Child support remains the same if the non-resident parent has co-habits or remarries. However, there is a reduction in the assessable amount of income if there are children living in the NRP''s household which may reduce the amount of child support.

Thanks everyone who has replied. There are only older children in his house (teens and 20s) and I doubt they will have their ''own'' child as we are approaching 50 in age!

Not unless he is the father of them.
