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.

Court date, nightmare divorce

The saga continues - FDR was cancelled a day before we were due to go to court. Our respective counsels thrashed out a deal. I wasn't 100% happy with it (is anyone?), but agreed to it because I wanted the nightmare to be over. Ex said she wanted a few days to think about it (yet another stalling tactic). She finally came back and said she didn't accept the offer and did not give a counter offer. I've heard nothing from her in nearly 2 months. FDR has been listed for March 2021, but it seems pointless having an FDR as we were negotiating. I'm an LiP and sent her solicitor a letter two weeks ago regarding rule 9.37A which directs parties to make proposals in the event of a failed FDR or if there has been no FDR. She has not responded. This is causing me untold stress and anxiety. Is there anything I can do to get her back to the table? She has no real incentive to get the divorce finalised as she is in the family home and also receives 100% of the income from a buy to let property.
Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks
