My wife and I are going through a very amicable divorce. We’ve agreed arrangements for our children and a financial settlement regarding the house, maintenance, contents etc. In return for giving her a lump sum equivalent to 70% of the value of the house; the car and paying child maintenance based on government guidelines she''s agreed to leave my savings and pensions alone.
On the face of it we now just need to get a solicitor to draw up a legal document for us to sign.
I know that we both need to ensure that the agreement clearly states words to the effect that this is a ‘full and final settlement’ and that there will be no ability for recourse from either party.
Is it really this simple or are there other factors we need to take into account?
Also, is there a form which will help us document what we’ve agreed that we can present to a solicitor.
Welcome to wiki, and to some extent well done on agreeing things as far as you have so far.
Have you already applied for the Nisi or are you just starting on the ''paper work?''
The concent order itself needs to be written up by a solicitor to ensure that its corretly phrased etc. You might want to look at one of the managed services (Wiki provides one of these) to handle this, and potentially the rest of the process.
