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.

At Decree Nisi stage judge awarded that H will have to pay my costs back.

How do I get these back. I assume they are to be settled at end of divorce. I am not using a solicitor and there is no financial settlement, other than Clean Break Consent Order in pipeline.

Based on H's past behaviour, (left me with all the loans, bills and I have kids not his though) he is not going to pay up easy. Can I ask the judge (and when and how) can I have an attachment to earnings order - within reason - or does the judge say he must pay me the whole sum by such a date and then I chase it up and how.

Not being nasty wanting my costs back, its the principal, long story but he really shafted me with everything else, so the least he can do is pay me back for the divorce he wanted.

thanks

If you are just getting back the Div Petition fee £300 + D/A £40.00

Give H 14 days notice to pay -if not if he has assets that could be seized you can instruct the CC Bailiff and issue a Warrant of Execution

Form is here with explanatory leaflet

Thanks that is so helpful.

I dont believe that he has enough or any assets to seize to cover the costs, or he will say they are his partners (even though she may have to show receipts to prove this?)as without resorting to slander I saw everything of value he took or had was sold on ebay to fund whatever ???? so would be better and cleaner to ask for attachement of earnings straight off.
