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.

My ex never supplied any credit card statements despite running up £18000 of debt which she maintained was marrital debt. At know time was she forced to provide statements. So I will be surprised if you are forced to show statements for non marrital debt.

Only thing is, have you been paying the card off from a joint account? Or money which she might consider part of the marital pot, even if it is from an account in your name?

Or, does she think that the cards may reveal an undeclared asset, which she might claim as part of the marital pot? After all, I don''t think there is much difference between saying, "this item was bought on my card therefore is mine and not part of the marital pot" and saying "this item was bought from my wages, and therefore is not part of the marital pot". I''m not saying you have bought anything of significant value, but it Might be what she is thinking, and hence why she wants to see your statements.

Or maybe she''s just going along with her solisitors advice, as I have heard it is standard practice to ask for 12 months credit card statements.

Whether she can force you to share 12 months statements, I have no idea.
