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.

Yes, a Consent Order, like any order, can be varied by reason of change of circumstances, such as retirement or redundancy or one of the psrties winning the Lottery, but if only a short time has elapsed since the order was made your ex is going to bring forward some pretty good reasons.

Sorry, that reply was perhaps ambiguous. I don't know what was in your order for orders for transfer of property. lump sums, etc, can be varied only in very exceptional circumstances, mainly if the order was obtained by fraud or concealement. An order for spousal maintenance can be varied on the grounds of change of circumstances, but
orders relating to capital in general, cannot.

Sorry about that !

Depends on terms of your order, if u got a Clean Break then you cant change the terms of the order nor the % split even if one of you won lottery... i think in all orders there is the terminology to apply to have its terms implimented, ie if your ex has to pay u X amount of pounds by such and such but doesnt then you would have to apply back to court to get this sorted.

Thanks for your reply boggles but the order is only about a 60 - 40 split to me for a Clean Break. there is nothing else on it really.
