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.

Hi

FDR - 11 May
Deadline for answers to each other''s questionnaire of form E - 29th March
Deadline for valuations of field and each other''s houses - 10th April

My answers to questionnaire and valuation filed at court and sent to stbx''s solicitors in time for first deadline

His valuations provided (late) but answers to questionnaire so far has not materialised,

My solicitor sent a letter chasing them up, today we receive a letter from his solicitor, raising questions on two of my replies:-

1. In the questionnaire they asked for statements for all savings accounts for the past twelve months, I have five savings accounts, I provided the statements, none of them have anything in them, they are now asking for a Schedule as there is a lot of statements.

2. In the questionnaire they asked if I had any private pension and a forecast for my state pension. I answered that I do not have a private pension, we paid into his. I answered that if there were such a thing when i retire, i will get whatever i am entitled to at that time - they have come back with two blank forms, BR10 and BR20 and requested that i fill them in and send them off and that the answers could take weeks to come back.

I am 48 years of age and have worked all my adult life apart from when the children were babies. I am not asking for child maintenance, my children are both adults, i am not asking for spousal support

How dare they raise questions on my answers to their questionnaire when they have not even answered my questionnaire and the deadline was two weeks ago?

My solicitor has written back saying we will consider their further questions when they have answered our questionnaire. Basically in the words of HRH - feck off !!!

His pension is only small (approx 18K) - since he drewdown 15k from it when we split in 2007

they inform us that they await their client''s responses to my answers and they will let us know if they have any further questions one they have his instructions!!

Conclusion, they feck about, do not provide answers to questions, so we go to FDR and hit him with costs and go for a settlement figure based on what he has put in his form E

Discuss ...

lol - thanks guys :)

What can you say eh!

I wonder why a solicitor would ask pointless and futile questions, oh I remember now, it''s the £200 per hour they charge.

Think yourself lucky young lady if I was acting for you ex I''d want to know what your favorite colour is your top ten movies, and what you had for breakfast.

Oh and if you replied feck off I''d what a detailed definition from you.

Wellcome to the wonderful world of family law.

What is your favorite colour by the way?

Well played Miss

I didn''t see that coming

:)

I know you will be thinking this is all pointless and waste of time but it will be much more clear at the FDR, thetas the time the silly buggers ends and it becomes more serious, for now your solicitor has it in hand.
