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.

Is this allowed to happen?

My partner's ex (separated but not yet divorced) sees fit to throw personal belongings, including ones of very high value, out of the matrimonial home if they are not removed this week. Does anyone know if this is legal?
A Separation Agreement has been signed which states that belongings may be removed by prior mutual agreement at 'a later date'.
My partner has been unceremoniously kicked out of the house for no apparent reason other than his spouse has decided she no longer loves him and wants to remove him and all things to do with him from her life. It would appear a third party is in evidence, but in denial. They have a young daughter, so, unfortunately, ongoing contact is expected to be maintained.

My experience is that anything goes and Courts wont listen to anything that is not "scheduled" and supported with evidence.
My x was instructed to deliver a few basic items to the homeless unit where I lived temp. His response was to dump a few items in the mh garden during a rainy winters night, cover them with slugs and worms, ceremoniously place a framed weddin pic (smashed) on top and phone incessantly giving me abuse to collect! The advice was that there was nothing could be done about it...and although I disagree...I look back on this occassion with laughter as to what a sad idiot my x was (and still is!)

As far as I know this is not unusual. There is not much you can do about it. If anyone is reading this remove your property before leaving. I took everything that was mine in 1 go. So there is nothing in the FMH. That way she couldnt do anything to my treasured possesions. Chris

Insurance probably wouldn't/shouldn't cover as it would not be "accidental" loss or damage. Perhaps asking why being so adamant about moving dates would be of assistance - perhaps offering to pay a storage charge would "soften" attitude? Worth a try and remeber, it's only stuff, - the things that really matter probably all fit in a suitcase and the rest is excess baggage... - Very liberating!
