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.

What is the best course of action to follow .. Is there a document we could draw up that would allow financial agreement based on dividing assets now and then reviewing the situation in a few months. Or possibly an agreement that from this moment on I would have no further claims on anything after this date... With a view that the document would have an expiry date?

I must admit it does sound fishy. You say you have filled in the HR1, make sure you send it to the Land Registry as the future sounds uncertain.

How can she put conditions on giving your relationship another go??, it just does''t sound genuine, is her heart in it at all, or is it all about money??

Very fishy. Why do I think like this? Because I did the same with my ex. I knew I wanted rid of him but I wanted to make sure I had all the financials in a way that would suit me.

Hi
Well 2 is no choice at all...don''t do this as you will probably live to regret this.

I am not sure what she means by a financial agreement has she mentioned what this might contain?

Wonder why you filling out the HR1 for would have caused upset ?

She would like some form of a document which will protect her interests..
This is a bit of a sticky point... As she has contributed a much larger share

She feels that I am not entitled to that much...like around 20%

I am now aware that she is hiding/ emptying accounts and assets

But an agreement wouldn''t be legally binding anyway so whats the point?

If she wants option two let her move out.

If she wants option three not a lot you can do about it.
