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.

Can anyone shed any light on this.

I haven't been home yet so it is possible there will be a letter waiting. However OBE is due to get his payout tomorrow but we have heard nothing from anyone, not our solicitor or his ex's solicitor. Tomorrow is the deadline in the court order. We eventually spoke to our solicitor last week who wrote to his ex's solicitor reminding them and asking for an update.

We have heard nothing since.

Unless there is a letter tonight it seems like the deadline will come and go and she will be late once again like she was with filing everything for court.

This time scale means nothing!!

I thought maybe she would leave it right to the death to pay him, that was obvious, but to hear nothing at all I find really odd. I know for a fact she got the ball rolling on raising the money 3 months ago. It doesn't take that long. I just think she is using this to punish him because she really thought she wouldn't have to pay him a penny but was so terrified to go into court at FH (which she pursued) that she couldn't do anything but to give in to paying him something. I think this is her last shot at him.....make him wait! Well, two can play that game...he might just make her wait too and not sign over the house???????

So, is there anyone that can tell us where we stand if she goes over the deadline date of the court order? I know we will probably be told to be patient for at least another week but this is getting beyond a joke. Its not as if he won his 50% more like about 18% then his fees have got to come off that too.

Much appreciated for any advice to help push this along.
