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.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I had a financial order on 23rd July 2019.

July 2021 I found that my ex has hidden some joint investment and had not declared this to the court. The joint assets to today's value is £13,789.

When he found out I was investigating these, he quit his job and take an early retirement ( he is nearly 60, his pension is around £400K), the payment of the child maintenance also stopped. He asked my daughter told me that if I even go to court again, as I am working and has rental income (sometimes I let a room out to meet the month end) , he would have right to ask me for maintenance.

Please could you kindly to help me to understand where I am stand for ?

If I go back to court, what should I do please?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards, Effie

What are you hoping to achieve by going back to court?

How much was the original pot worth at the time of the divorce and how was this split? If this investment had been known about at the time would it have changed the outcome to any great degree?

In short is it worth even considering having your original order set aside and all the expense in time, money and mental energy for a share of £14k?
