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.

Had an FDR hearing a few months ago where ex and I settled by way of a Consent Order. Within days of the hearing he announced he was moving to India and has predictably not met any of his financial obligations in the order. It is now over 3 months since the hearing and my solicitor advised some weeks ago that I apply to the court to have it "set aside" but I didn''t have the strength to fight as I was preparing for a shared residence final hearing (which incidentally he lost - no surprise there). Does anyone have any experience of this? I do not have the money for solicitors and am weary of the courts but desperatley need some money from ex for the children.
any advice appreciated.

The fact that he has not complied with his obligations under the order is not, of itself, grounds to have the order set aside.

Are we talking about enforcement here ?
