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 recently sent a letter to the solicitor representing my stbx. Despite sending it by recorded delivery they have refused to sign for the letter.

What should I do?

Seems very strange, they can`t know its from you?, i suppose hand delivered with a written acknowledgment is the only way to go.

Yes, I guessed they couldn''t know who it was from. They also have not responded to my email.

There are other strange things such as sending me a letter without the name of the solicitor representing my stbx and on the same letter it was hand signed with the name of the company rather than the person who sent the letter. Why would they be doing these strange things?

I was advised in connection with a completely unrelated matter that normal 1st class post with a certificate of posting would be accepted as proof of delivery and that to be absolutely sure it was a good idea to send three copies from different post offices all with certs of posting.

Well, refusal to accept a letter is proof of receipt.....

Thanks for that advice, I guess that is what I will have to do with my next letter to them. I had not realised that option when sending letters.

How about my comment above about them not not giving the name of the solicitor representing my stbx. That doesn''t seem like normal practice, is it?
