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.


Can I challenge once a divorce agreement is settled

Hi,

Can I challenge the initial divorce in Courts?

We have amicably agreed the terms of the divorce and finalised it. I basically left the house and didn't contest it in the courts, I agreed to a small financial settlement as I didn't want my kids to suffer by selling the house etc. My main concern was access to my children and we agreed to share the custody equally. It is going on well so far but she has found a new boyfriend and I got to know that she is intending to sell the property and move closer to his house. If this happens it will jeopardise my kids life as well as mine, I will have move further from where we all live and it will take 3 hours driving to my work. The kids will have to re-school and they will lose their friends etc. On the basis of above factors can I challenge the initial divorce agreement in the courts?

Many thanks

If your agreement was not turned into a Consent Order at Court then you can start the financial remedy process to get that done. All assets (houses, chattels, pensions) of both parties and needs of everyone (children give priority) will be considered as well as earning capacity.

The financial Consent Order was agreed as a part of the divorce but child custody was not contested as we have agreed between us to share the child custody. I am more concern about the children and not the financial side.
