Final Hearing today NEW UPDATE was created by mightyredmen
Just returned from my final hearing. Court Order signed and sealed by District Judge.

After two years I finally have an outcome. :)

75:25 % split of FMH on mesher order with usual triggers. I get 25% of valuation of family home before selling costs. Ex has to bear these.

25% pension sharing order. CM to be calculated by CSA.

Clean break order with no SM or futher claims.

Frustratingly this is what I offered at FDR but was rejected by ex. 3 weeks ago I offered 70:30 split, 25% pension sharing and £50 SM also rejected by ex!!. Bet she wishes she took that now.

Well done popoliv ... at last you can get on with your life! Have a VERY large glass of something to celebrate!

It is extremely common to find that FDR opinions and FH outcomes are similar. Happened in my case too ... only a shame I could not claim back the extra costs of the FH from him :(.

2k!! Gosh you got off lightly ;).
It was an extra 12k for me ... shocking waste of money and no chance of comeback :(.

Total bill nearly £30k (me) and £20 (him - legal aid). :X

I did though "win" in effect ... if I had settled for what he wanted at FDR (as opposed to what the judge said was fair) It would have cost £20k.

Actually what he got was not only what the judge said at FDR ...but also pretty much what I had suggested first time I went to see the solicitor. That is what happens when you are dealing with someone who won''t negotiate, has a VERY awkward solicitor, and wants the judge to decide ... :huh:. He could have had his money, we could have saved the costs and perhaps now I could help my daughters out at uni ..


Hmmm...

Congratulations it''s always good to hear how it ended,it is a waste though in terms of costs, this could have ended at FDR without wasting the money and agreeing before judgment.

Still you have what you wanted and that is all that matters in the end.
