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.

Court Order: brinkmanship?

Hi guys

a quick question in relation to a court imposed final order: how important is it if the timing stated as part of the Order is not kept to??

The order stated clearly that my stbx had to make the mortgage pmts ''as and when they fell due'' (she hasn''t leading to extra mortgage charges although now 2 months later she has finally brought it uptodate) and also return our car to the finance company ''forthwith'' (2 months later she is still driving it and has refused to hand it back).

I have been waiting over a month for a response to the D11 I submitted to get judge''s Directions in relation to her numerous breaches of the Order but I''m concerned that by the time I get a response she will have returned the car. But surely her brinkmanship in all matters should be a sign to the judge of her unreliability and untrustworthiness???

Getting REALLY fed up with the court now over this....if I was being very cynical I would suggest the judge (who made the ridiculous order in the first place) is deliberately sitting on my D11 to give my stbx as much time as possible to comply with the order, even though she''s already had 2 months!

''Justice'' in this country is a joke. IMO.

I have a ''Directions Hearing'' next month after a long wait for a response to my D11 which is a step forward (I hope) but my question in the original post still stands:-

How important is it if the timing stated as part of the Final Order is not kept to?

Thanks
