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.

An order was granted to me by a UK court back in Jan of this year. The paper work has been sent to the relevant authorities abroad and I am still awaiting confirmation that that order has been granted.

However, in the meantime my my ex wife has found out that an order had been granted to me and has now decided that she is no longer going work abroad and terminated her contract As she refuses to pay additional maintenance me and thinks that by returning to the UK she will be able to avoid paying me any addtional maintenance.....She returns to the UK in Sept and is not likely that I will have been granted the order by then.

Does anybody know how I can continue to pursue with this order when she returns to the UK? and get it enforced? surely its not just a matter of case closed! She curently owes me in excess of £2000 ....

Grateful for any advice or help?

Hi,

When she returns to the UK, the courts here in the UK will enforce it.

I am in the same situation and have sent the REMO papers to Spain, where my ex is currently residing. However, should he ever return to the UK, the courts here will enforce the order.

You certainly will not loose the outstanding debt due to you. It''s irrelevant where she lives. In actual fact, getting the UK courts to enforce the order will be a lot quicker than her being overseas so she may well have shot herself in the foot so to speak.

Thank you for your quick response. That is very reassuring. I am not trying to get extra money from her only what I am legally entitled to.

Thanks again
