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.

Hello, I need to redact my bank statement as there is a name mentioned twice, and the amounts are £50 and £40. My wife is an emotional abuser and will cause chaos just seeing this name even though there is nothing wrong here. Does anyone know whether I can I redact my statement for this or not and what would happen if she challenged it even though it is not for a large amounts and not recurring?

I think it would be very unlikely that you would be allowed to edit your bank account. It kind of goes against the whole principle of fair disclosure. But there must be a method for protecting the victims of abuse.

But judges aren't interested in small amounts of money, and would be unlikely to force you to reveal what was behind the black. After all, such small sums are hardly going to change any decisions.

Are you sure that having names concealed wouldn't wind her up even more than seeing a name? How much havoc can she cause in a financial matter anyway? It doesn't matter who the money went to, financial settlements are 'no blame' so its pretty immaterial who you paid £90, whatever she thinks. I think I would let her get wound up and see the judge smack her down if she steps out of line!
