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.

I have no idea.

Was the legal and share company advice based on just market conditions/share prices or were they aware of the divorce? If solicitor was aware of the divorce surely he would not have suggested putting the money in Ex's bank account.

Hope someone can help.

Tinny beat me to it.

I was going to ask the same question. I can understand why your solicitor might have advised you to sell your shares, but not why the money was going to go into your husband's bank account. Did you agree to this ? How could it be paid to you r husband without your consent ?

I think we need to know quite a bit more.

How did the money for the shares get put into your x2b's bank account, if the shares were in your name only.

I would persue whoever sold them on your behalf to find out why they did not pay the monies directly to you, and threaten legal action unless they claw it back and pay into your bank.

Also what does x2b say he is going to do with the money he's suddenly received...

my ex used to control all the finances including his and my shares and used his own bank account to buy and sell which i thought was ok when we were a couple.. i told the share company i was divorcing and needed to prevent my ex from taking my money (he sold 50k of his own shares and spent it paying his credit card bills). i gave them my bank details but they deposited the money into his as they had done so before and would not take any responsibility for this as they said i had failed to change bank details( they still have a statement of mine from august with my bank acc no)

I sold some shares, they were in my name only and I was paid by cheque made out to me....unfortunately not as much as £39K (I wish) :(.

Think I got the meaning of you first post a bit wrong :silly:and Josh maybe got it more right. As Mike said a bit more info needed.

Sorry posts crossed.

Think you need qualified advice about this one. Do you have copies of what the Share Company were given? Hope someone can give better advice.
