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.

Hi
I have been divorced for 6 years. I pay child maintenance and spouse maintenance under a segal order. No problem with paying child maintenance but the ex is now working and earns £40,000 per annum. When the order was set she was not working. Now she has the extra income what would my chances of succeeding if I take her to court to vary. She is still in the former matrimonial home and we have a mesher order whereby I get my 25% back when youngest is 18.

Thank you

Jed

I think you would have a very good chance of varying the spousal maintenance now that she is earning that much. Of course it all depends on the figures, though.
