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 going to court over a Financial Settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support for people who are going to court over a fair financial settlement, for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Haven''t been on this site for a while - I thought everything was sorted, but now my ex decided to stop paying maintenance according to the Consent Order. He has recently moved and won''t tell me his new address.

Question: I have to send him an "official letter" asking him to pay according to the Consent Order by registered mail. Since I don''t know his address can I send it to his parents or to his work address? Or do I have to pay for a PI again to find out the address :S

As long as he gets it and you can prove that he has received it, there should be no problem.

But if you send notices to his parents'' address or to his place of work, he will say he did not receive it and it may be difficult for you to prove otherwise.

So you are probably talking about using someone to serve him at his workplace. Could your solicitors not arrange this ?

Thanks Mike. I don''t have a solicitor at the moment (trying to save some money). The last time I had to employ a PI, it costed a fortune, but fortunately my ex was ordered to pay for the costs.
