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.


bank statements etc ...

Hi confused,

My ex did the same when I was going through divorce, he got a telling off from the DJ and told to provide them.
I am back in court in 10 days as he wants the court order for SM dismissed, this time he has gone one further and I have not even had his Form E ! I filed mine by the due date into court, he has not even done that but I will go to court hoping the DJ gives him hell but knowing we will have to go through another hearing. Judges are not impressed by such behaviour and take a dim view. If you think your stbx is not telling the truth, the DJ is more likely to believe you. I will let you know what happens with mine.
Best wishes :)

Thanks .... So I just wait quietly ...

Strange isn''t it how some of us have respect for the Law and meet deadlines imposed and other seem to think they are "above" it!

Have you written to the court or his solicitor asking about the form? Do you think I should pose some questions on what I think has happened (huge spending sprees) or just keep quiet and wait till the court date?

I fear he may submit them just before so i don''t have time to ask questions before the court date ... do you get a chance in court?

I''ve never had any dealings with the legal system before so I just don''t know what to expect onthe day.

Good luck to you though.

Hi again,

Yes send a letter to his solicitor requesting all the missing information and any questions. Usually you only ask about large amounts of money eg £500 and above. Try to concentrate on the most important questions because you are more likely to get answers if the list is not endless.

Send your letter recorded so it has to be signed for and fasten your proof to your copy then put into a file and take to court if no information is forth coming.

I am more than happy to answer any questions to give you support through this.

((((Big hug))))
