Hi. I’m asking for a friend....
Her husband has left and she remains in their house with her youngest child who is doing A levels.

Can her husband pursue and obtain a divorce without a financial settlement being reached? I guess she can refuse the divorce for a while in an effort to force him to talk about their finances? He’s talking about seeing a lawyer but my friend is broke and would rather they agreed between themselves

Help would be appreciated

Divorce and financial settlement are two different things, Divorce can certainly happen without financial settlement it’s just many try to tie it up in one go

We did our divorce online you have to separated for 2 years before you can apply anyway it’s about £450 the assets/liability are separate sorted though a clean break or consent Order That’s £50 online but only if they can agree if not they will need to try mediation it’s £90 per hour if that fails it’s financial dispute at court that is £255 there are three hearings the first Appointment not much happens but there is A LOT of paperwork then a second hearing lots more paperwork it’s a dispute resolution when the judge will give their opinion on what that think is a reasonable split of assets/order to make then if that fails it’s a third and final hearing and a different judge will get them to cross examine each other with the disagreements a lot of paperwork and evidence will be needed then the judge makes an order job done!!
