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 had a very acrimonious divorce with the ex spending all my lifetime savings on legal fees. The outcome of the court order is that both houses ( jointly owned ) have to be sold. She also has to pay me back interim spousal maintenance as she is getting a capital sum.

I have said that before contract she has to agree the apportionment of the proceeds between us and as she is being paid in full have her name removed from the deeds of the second house.

She refuses to discuss until the house is sold and the money is in the solicitors escrow account. If she will not agree I will have to continue paying interim maintenance and rent for a home for myself and my boys. If I will not sign she is going to apply to the court. Help. What can I do? James
