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.

Open letters between solicitors had laid down that my ex required half the net profits from the matrimonial home and half our possesions.We had agreed to deal with all debts 50/50 and then a Clean Break order was agreed. I agreed and expeditied the sale of our home and allowed her to take any possesions she wanted.This was all concluded in May 07.

The Decree Nisi was granted in Sept 07. Since then my x has attempted to move the goal posts and now seeks to persue a joint share in another property I purchased alone 9 years ago with a mortgage. There would be approx £100000 equity in this property at current market values.

Can she do this or would a judge rule that the clean break should stand?

I dont know much but are you not supposed to disclose everything, during negotiatons? Was she not aware of this property, if that is the case, than there
may be some sort of case, i think, hope that is not the case if thats what you want. ruku

She was fully aware of al financial assets but so keen to get divorced she did not raise the issue in the divorce proceedings. Now she has a new partner I suspect he has promptrd her to pursue for more.
