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.

Hi

Hope somebody out there can help

I want to make an application to the court using form D11 to ask them to enforce a previous Financial Order

Can I lodge my application with any County Court in England or does it have to be the same Court and County that issued the original Finacial Order that is 250 miles away from where I now live ?

Any advice appreciated

Best thing to do is phone your local court on Monday, they are really helpful.

Best wishes

Hi,

just to let anyone know who may also have the same question as me ... been into the local county court today ... they advised me to submit my application for enforcement to the original court that issued the order and ask in the application to have the case transferred to the court I want ... they had no idea whether or not my request would be granted.

It''s a long way to go so back up you want it transferred do you have children or any commitments that prevent you traveling, help the judge to decide in other words.

Thank you Dukey, your advice is appreciated.

Im looking for advice as to what I should and indeed what I shouldnt include in my notice letter to ex regarding my proposed application for enforcement ... can you help at all ?

I want to claim costs if it gets that far so I assume I should give her a chance to comply prior to my application.

I am writing to her expressing my intention should we not agree a price as ordered but should I include full details of my proposed application ? ... I intend to self rep as I cant afford solicitors.

Your doing this yourself so don''t make the mistake of writing as a lawyer would, nice plain English.

Simply inform her that unless she complies with the order in a given time you will apply to court to have the order enforced and you will seek full costs for doing so, always keep copies of everything and send it recorded, give her a couple of weeks, if no joy then you apply to enforce.
