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.

Okay...
I have just returned from a meeting with my sol..... where we had to go through my 'statement of issues'.... and my 'questionaire' re my STBX's financial disclosure.... and these were 'ordered' to be served and filed by 10th March.... sounds simple enough...
However.... when I arrived at her office, she informed me that my STBX still hadn't supplied the bank statements that the court had ordered be filed and served by last week....

But..... we were still to send the questionaire and statement of issues, because we had been 'ordered' to do so...
Now....I pointed out to her that without his bank statements, how could we possibly put together a questionaire... she said we still had to, with what we had so far....


Now, I have no problem whatsoever doing what I'm supposed to, by whatever date is ordered.... my STBX has had something like 4 months to 'supply' this documentation.... but it seems to me that he can basically delay the proceedings without any repercussions whatsoever....

it just doesn't make sense!!!!:(

Hi Scottish Lady!

All you can do is prepare your questionnaire on the basis of information received and comment on it that you reserve the right to ask further questions subject to the answers received and the supply of information directed by the court in the court order dated Xth Whateverary 200X not yet received from your husband.

The only thing you gain by sticking to the court dates, no matter how stupid it seems, is that at the Final Hearing you can say that you have complied with ALL court directions. If you don't comply with just one you'll be lumped in with your husband as a 'baddy'.

Long live the goodies!

Good luck!
