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.

He''s driving me nuts!!!!

Need to vent so will apologise now!

Stbx has decided in his infinite wisdom to write a 3 page letter to the judge rather than return the D10 form or acknowledgement of service! He''s ***** mental im sure of it!
Reasons for this....''shortage of funds''....Legal aid!!!!!!

We''ve been separated for the past 5 1/2 yrs and both have moved on and r with other partners we both agreed on the divorce, but now he is being a total twat!

I know (by my solicitor) that i am entitled to 40% of the house (due to our kids residing with him) but the idiot seems to think that if he doesnt sign the papers then he wont have to pay me anything (:

The crap that he wrote to the judge is laughable....He should write a book....it would be a best seller with his imagination......

Wondering if anyone else out there has had the same grief with their stbx and how they dealt with it.

If he has the kids I would have thought a 70/30 split was nearer the mark.

To be honest, there isnt enough detail in your post to get solid advise?

What exactly is it that he has written thats laughable?

And no solicitor can tell you definitely what you will get financially, they can tell you a likelihood in their opinion, but from my limited knowledge of divorce finances, for a house that he already had prior to meeting you, a 2 year marriage and 3 children who live with him, 40% seems a lot to me?
