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.

My ex has been living in his new home with is new partner for a few weeks and his refusing to take his things from the marital home. What can I do? He''s told me he owns half the f-ing house and for me to store his stuff somewhere but I don''t feel I have to do this, do I?

Should I write to his solicitor requesting that he collects it before I dispose of it?

You are in for a long wait; it took my ex three years to collect his stuff!

For now I would stick it in boxes in a garage or shed. At least then it is not in your way. Once you have the divorce and finances sorted then you could give him a deadline.

Unfortunately while he co-owns the house you have to put up with this. I have quite a large house and so I was able to put it all in one room and ignore it. It took five years and my buying him out before he would collect it and even then he delayed for ages and told his solicitor that I was preventing him from having access to get it!

Hey,

You cannot dispose of his property. If you do, you are liable to be charged with wilful destruction of property if he chooses to press charges against you.
You can ask your solicitor to write to him/his solicitor to advise him that you would like the property out of the house & see what response that generates.
As SexySadie says, as long as he co-owns the property he''s entitled to keep his belongings in it.
Add to that, maybe he doesn''t have the space at his new place to store them? I would pack up his belongings & put them in the shed, loft or garage.
