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.

I was the respondent but our case should never have gone to court. Very short marriage, no kids, wife a high earner, young etc etc.
She refused mediation. She knew exactly what she wanted (half my property) but she didnt get that. We had to ''settle'' and she got less than half of the money her side requested. Nasty business. Never again.

Way to go there, but the bottom line is you have to have A SOLICITOR WHO IS UPHOLDING THE LAW and not just hiking up a large bill over over 9K.

You say never again well don''t let me see you again on this site, it is a nasty business of trusting someone

Between my wife and myself the legal bills topped more than her ''settlement''. What an utter waste of money, time, and emotion.
She wanted to ''get at'' me because I cut contact with her after she left and she never expected that to happen. She thought I would be there to listen to her problems, take her out for meals etc. Never happened.

All I can say it was liked by raped by the Solicitors and Barristers who did nothing. I could and did most of my paperwork and my counsel sat back did beggar.
No wonder why there are so many solicitors reaping the benefits of others distress they cant keep up with the work load parasites

It really is amazing the lengths that Ex H/W will go to!
Since my ex decided to stop paying joint lives SM he has come up with so many ways to hide money including purchasing the maximum number of premium bonds in both his and OW name.

I know he has done this but have not a chance in hell of getting proof!

He is now 10 days over due filing his form E, we both have to do it again because he applied to have the order dismissed, not realising that any variation of the order entails an updated financial disclosure.

Surprise surprise, he now does not want to go back to court and refuses to respond. He is a very high earner and will get away with this all over again. :(

Following on the thread, if you have evidence from your divorce proceedings and undeclared papers that should have been taken into consideration, do you have to inform the authorities?
If you do nothing surely you are an accessory?


When there is evidence of non disclosure at the time it should be raised during proceedings. If evidence later comes to light of non disclosure at the time of proceedings an application can be made to set the order aside.

Perjury is a serious offence and the family division now recognises that due to the important precedent of Imerman v Tchenquiz which states that no decision should be made in family proceedings that would result in another action whether that is tort equity or law.

It also made a big caution to legal reprentatives and litigants alike that other divisions such as chancery., commercial or queens bench were unlikely to be as lienient on litigants (which includes solicitors as they are people in law - hence their letters are signed as the firm rather as the individual).

If a legal firm or a court takes no notice of your highlighting perjury then your action is to take an action out in chancery or commercial or if you are really ruthless in Queens Bench - the most ruthless and pitiless branch of law in the UK - civil prosecution as you can get people in prison and gain compensation there whereas in the Crown prosecution it is only the duty there to get a criminal prosecution and get a penal sentence.

Believe me as I have been there not by choice but because my ex husband and his legal teams have been unable to accept the decisions of family and have by their own choice transferred this to Chancery who told them no and then to Queens Bench who have continually told them NO and now my small money divorce is going to hit the public news.

Perjury is a criminal offence and if you stay in civil courts you can get penal senteneces for the guilty as well as damages in finance against them.
