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.

Blokey,

I think you need to apply immediately for a variation in maintenance order through the court.

It should cost < 200 quid in court fees.

You can represent yourself. The issues to be discussed are quite straight-forward, namely a reduction in your income.

You were made redundant (not your fault) and you are continuing to pull your weight by still working full time (albeit in a less well paid job).

The variation can be backdated to the date that you applied for it which is why you need to apply ASAP.

Hi

Also what right has your ex got to ask what your partners equity is in her house? Absolutely none!!!

A court will not order you to provide such details as your new partners finances are nothing to do with you and your ex.

The only time it may be worth putting forward your partners finances is if its beneficial to you! i.e...even with your partners income and having a place to live, you still struggle financially and can prove it.

p.s. isnt it really your ex's position to take you to court for none payment? But having read downbutnotouts take on it, i think its best you do as he says in the circumstances.

Kind regards
Louise

My Partner recently sold a property and while I was at FDR the exes solicitors came out with all land registry details, the fact it was for sale, how much etc and the mortgage companys name, obviously me ex solitors asking me how much equity there would be after sale etc. This has caused no end of fights between me and my partner as feel like being stalked but now my solicitor is askin for all partners details debts etc. My partner is on verge of leaving me because of it all!!... I wonder where the law stands myself on this sought of harrasement to New partners when quite clearly what they have or havent got is nothing to do with the marital finances!!

Hi all,

My ex has a new man living with her and my sol has asked for his assets/liabilities to be disclosed. This is to support the fact that I do not wish to pay SM as her needs are met by her new partner. We aren't interested in what he has or hasn't got, just want to show her needs are met.
She on the other hand, has declared him living with her, but yet her needs are not met and requires SM from me.
Her opening question on the statement of issues is about my NP income and assets.
My NP, who does not and will not live with me (got her own home too far away from me)is fuming that they are asking for this even though we are not and have no intention of cohabiting. My sol will not disclose this information as he states it is not relevant to the case, whereas her NP' income is relevant as this is a needs case.

Asking for information on NP income? assetts is fine in my eyes but where do you stand when the other side find the information out for themselves and throw it at you in court??
