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.

Suspect lies on Form E

Hello all.
I am approaching the date of First Appointment. We have exchanged questionnaires and answers. In my ex''s paperwork there was clear evidence that she purchased a vehicle recently, yet in her form E she claims to have absolutely no assets and claims not to own a vehicle. I asked her in my questionnaire to disclose the V5 documnet for the vehicle, but she failed to comply, stating that the vehicle is registered to her ex-boyfriend. As she still lives with said ex, and uses this vehicle daily, I can see no reason that she cannot obtain the V5 document and therefore disclose a copy, thereby clarifying the matter.
I suspect the vehicle is registered in her name. So my question; what are the consequences of her being dishonest on her Form E, a sworn document?
Thank you for any advice in advance.

If matrimonial money was used to pay for the vehicle then it would be regarded as a matrimonial asset, I don''t think she would get away with registering it in her BF''s name as a way of hidding assets, but the payment must surely show up on her bank statements if she paid for the car?

I know for a fact that my husband lied on his sworn Form E and nobody seemed to be bothered about it !!! There don''t appear to be any consequences and frankly I now wish I had lied on mine as well !!

You are not alone - this has happened to me too, where my husband stated there were no joint savings - there were £32,000 of joint endowments which he spent. I also know of a friend recently divorced where her ex stated he was living in a 1 bed rented flat, when he was cohabiting with new partner. It seems that no action is taken at all!
