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.

Any advice on likelihood of being able to pursue NRP for school fees if RP unilaterally decides to move kids from state school and place kids into private school some years after final order?

Would seem unlikely.

What is their justification?

Can NRP afford it?

Would it be reasonable to expect the children to be privately educated?

Justification cited being that it presents a better educational opportunity than state.

Judge agreed with RP decision to place 1 child in private setting at a Specific issue hearing based on 'RP knowing the needs of the child better than the NRP'.

Judge also mentioned that RP can pursue a separate application if financial support needed regarding fees in the future. I suspect that an application will follow. Hence the original post.

Presumably though RP can afford it at time they have made the decision? If they need financial support in the future they would need to demonstrate what has changed that they no longer can.

RP is basically stating that they are borrowing money/soft loans to pay the fees right now, and once they cannot do so, intend on pursing a court application to seek a contribution from the NRP. Even though the NRP never agreed to the decision to go down the public/fee paying school route.

Question is what is the likelihood of success of the NRP pursing such an application?
