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.

Hi, my ex had a very good high earning job but after allegation of Domestic abuse, he has left his job, dissipated all his cash and declared him depressed and went on Universal credit. Now I am left with no MPS. Property is on sale but would take months for sale due to current economic condition. What can I do?
How long my ex can live on Universal credit due to Depression and Stress?

Add to question, can any one just go off sick with stress just to avoid giving maintainance?

Has he gone to court to try to get the MPS changed?

If not it is still payable.

Attitude of the court will probably depend on the circumstances. If your ex is genuinely not well enough to work his treatment may take some time.
