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.

Part of my husband''s court order with his ex wife is that on remarriage she has to sell the house. She has now remarried and refuses to entertain the notion of selling the house.

We have a date for an enforcement hearing and are representing ourselves. The ex wife''s solicitor says that they will put in for a stay to be heard at the same time as the enforcement hearing (I''m not sure on what grounds - remarriage seems fairly conclusive!).

Can anyone please tell me if we will be notified that they other side have applied for a stay? And, if so, how long before we are likely to be notified. We haven''t had anything yet.

Help appreciated. Thanks DD

Don`t worry too much, i don`t have huge experience of enforcement but in the few i have the respondent has always tried to vary set aside discharge bla bla bla, what tends to happen is the judge will consider the enforcement and then the add on application if they have time.

Seems fairly simple to me, you marry you sell, what possible defense could there be, can you find out and post then maybe more targeted advice can be given.
