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.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

What can a person do AFTER Decree Absolute if her ex husband should have paid her a lump sum as agreed but has so far not paid it, he instead pays interest to her on the amount owed. Add to this issue that he may also have been 'economical with the truth' when it came to the value of assets owned at the time of divorce and I wonder whether the agreement could be looked at again?

not through courts just via solicitors and was a clean break in as much as a lump sum as opposed to spousal maintenance and a 50/50 split of assets

The only thing you can do now is go back to court presumably this Consent Order done through "solicitors" was stamped by a Judge????

If so then off to court you must go to ask a Judge to enforce it!

if it has not been stamped by a Judge then be prepared for a long battle ahead as you go down the court path of issuing form A, basically starting all over again!

If he was "economical" with the truth at the time of settlement and you can proove it, the consent order you have is not worth the paper its written on.

And you can always take it straight back to court!

Oh and btw.............you can always ask a Judge for costs to be awarded against him!
