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.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Topic started by kudosfree
I divorced 7 years ago and agreed to a Consent Order which included maintenance.

6 years ago I sought a downward variation on grounds that ex would now be able to work as children older and maintenance was reduced.

My ex is now seeking upward a variation and has listed 10 issues.

Amongst these she is now seeking:-

Index linking, backdated to outset

Reinstatement of original maintenance

Financial commitment for childrens university in 4-6 years time

Allegations of hidden income


The judge did not comment at first appointment and I have now written to court asking for courts direction on which issues can be considered, but would appreciate advice on what issues are normally within scope of variation FDR/ final hearing

Thanks
