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.

If there is an agreement in the recital of an order - ie. x agrees to pay £xxx global child maintenance on a monthly basis, what do I do if he now does not pay. CSA do not want to know as it is court order, and yet it is in the recital.

Any advice very much appreciated - why on earth did I think this would end at the final hearing.

Many thanks,

How about attaching his earnings? If it''s expressed as an agreement, this has contractual force. A failure to pay is a breach of contract and the court has enforcement powers. It may be best to use the new procedure under FPR r.33.3(1)(b) where you just ask for such enforcement order as the court thinks fit. Then the judge can work out what''s best.
