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.

just received my stbx form E. she has only give me 8 months bank statements but left 16 months ago. her sole bank account has now had her partners name added to it, her partners bank acc. had her name added then removed after 4 months only received statements for that time. one of her wage slips is missing.two P60s are missing she as had 4 jobs in 12 months. she wants the FMH sold making me and kids homeless. she lives with her partner she says she needs £45000 to buy a place of her own (only £30k in equity on house)her partner is going through a divorce as well both him and his wife have house W in FMH, him in a house in his name which is paid for. she is claiming £200 a month for a car which is his ( he as two cars) she doesnt need a car she could get a bus pass £8.50 which goes near enough from her door to her place of work. she says she works 30 hours a work but her wage slips show 90 per month???? claiming £100 a month for holidays but cant afford to contribute to maritial debts, i found all this after reading through here Form E once god knows what i will find when i look closer, if me just a joe public can see its a scam my learned solicitor should be able to rip her to bits. the cock ups that are made on her form are very blatant and if her solicitor cant see it mine will have an easy job in court. biggest cock up she has claimed £8000 more in her assets than she has self explanatory on form, stbx got it amended by £7.25 and initialed it but didnt notice the £8k, do you think i should be worried i am going to be taken to the cleaners ha ha

Hi Soulmanuk,
Your stance seems to be fairly aggressive. While I can understand your frustration at the answers in the Form E and better stance would be analise, make notes and comments on the various points of contention. Then let your solicitor have all the details and that your sol.asks for clarification and evidence in support. If no replies are forthcoming, then at the FDR ( I presume you have have had your first hearing) seek directions from the DJ. The Form E declaration and the truth will eventually come out.

I know I have been there and it works
Regards

i know it seems agressive, but when someone is trying to make you and your kids homeless you put up a fight. i am not at my First hearing until march but all this is a stalling tactic, i have had this for 16 months and there is only so many times you can kick a dog before it turns round and bite you. i have been trying to sort this out amicable for 12 months only to be met with abuse and threats now i am on the attack. i have all the proof to show that they are lies and i cant wait to give my sol the proof. it looks like they are playing one divorce off against the other so that the money they get off me will pay his wife out. what he is going through with his wife as no bearing on my stbx assets and earning capacity and vice versa. the more i look at things and work them out the more i find she is lying. the biggest mistake is working weekly amounts into monthly amounts. people work it out at 4 times but you have to multiply it by 4.33 thats how you can find or hide a third of your money i was told that by another boarder i have found £100 a month that as been 'mislaid' so when the stbx says she as no money to pay towards the marital debt i will hit her with that one.

Hi Soulmanuk
She can do all the stalling she wants but she cannot avoid a first hearing. I gave been through what your are feeling, all the frustration, the lies, the back biting. Believe me its jist not worth it retaliating. Just keep your sol. informed, give him the evifence in a timely way. Get your sol. to send letter(s) of clarification. Honestly the truth will out albeit gradually and the DJ will not tolerate fools or those who flout the system.

The calm reasoning,non confrontational method will always win through. Try making a resonable offer of settlement via your sol. This will always stand you in good stead.

As I said, done the first hearing, given all subsequent evidence, done the FDR, made the offers. Had the reports prepared on my pensions and the best way to pension share, given even further evidence. Had the threats and the lies. Now at Final hearing. All the advice I get is I will get 50% of the marital house sale becuse of 33 yrs of marriage, she will get part of my pension. My X will lose to the tune of £20000 sols bills. But the long term losers are me & the X for not being able to decide on a settlement. The winners are the Sols.
