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.

Would there be a time in the Financial proceedings where abusive messages relating directly to the financial settlement would be relevant? My partner who is the respondent in a case has had several absuive messages (plus some nasty social media posts) from his ex and her friend, indicating that her plan is to make sure he gets nothing in the divorce settlement. Would that be evidence to support that his ex isn't looking for a fair settlement, but is just being vindictive? If so, when and how could that be included in the proceedings?

If the messages constitute harassment, a word could be had with the police.

I think the financial proceedings would only be affected if the messages showed evidence of things like dissipation of assets or any deliberate act designed to defeat a financial claim.

At the end of the day, if she isn't going to play nicely and mediation doesn't help, it may help to apply to the courts and have a judge deal with her.

Before that it would probably help both parties to do some homework on how financial settlement works. At the end of the day it is needs that are considered first - for housing and income, now and in the future.

Thanks hadenoughnow. There isn't enough evidence for a criminal harassment and the finances are already in the court system heading to FDR, which was threatened by the ex right from the start.
