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.

It does happen i`m afraid.

Do you know why your ex is not playing ball, if there is no real reason and the judge decides the ex will not comply with the court process then ultimately the process will move on.

What will happen depends on how the judge feels, they can continue without the ex or more probable the judge will order a penal notice be served, this can escalate the matter.

At the end of the day we are talking about judges, and judges can send a person to prison if they refuse to do as ordered.

If you call the court and ask to speak with the lister you should get a good idea of how the judge thinks it should be handled.

Thanx for your reply. My ex has just buried his head in sand, no reason why he wont reply, but in the mean time my solicitor has now adjourned the first appointment because there is the matter of an endowment policy. Should I persue this matter. All I want is a fair share of the property I jointly own. Don''t care about his pension and other assets. Feel like giving up and forgetting the matter now.

It''s cost me a fair bit to pursue my ex, after waiting patiently for over a year while he stalled...but as of yesterday I am £120k better off for having done so, so it can be worth it!
