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.

Am I able to ask on my questions and statement of issues, how my stbx was able to fund a trip to Thailand in March for a 2 week holiday whilst claiming Job Seekers allowance. He has always been a grafter and in my opinion is working but claiming job seekers to claim legal aid to make his situation look bad. So can I question how it is was possible to fund a holiday whilst claiming Job seekers. He has stated in form E that he is claiming, and I can evidence his trip to Thailand.

Would the Judge look upon me badly for asking this?

He''ll probably reply that he saved up, had some savings which he used or someone gave him a gift.

Hardly likely to say he is working on the black economy and claiming benefits at the same time.

If you think he is working while claiming consider reporting him to benefit fraud line.
