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 all
jusy received questionnaire replies from ex's solictor
judge requested unredacted business bank statements from ex and his solictor has sent heavily redacted copies, about 30 transactions showing out of 64 pages
judges instructions were clear. Can I go back and request unredacted as per judge instructions as his solictor is saying GDPR restricts what they can show
when this was raised in court judge said it's not sensitive info for me to see it
am just aware of mounting costs of emails between solicitors but am mad as hell that I am having to chase her for something that is an order but don't really want the cost of returning to court to get a decision
my solicitor is saying she feels it is exempt anyway under section 4 of GDPR?
any advice appreciated

What kind of sums are involved?

Have all business transactions been redacted or just a selection?

The judge will no doubt have come across this before. The order is clear.

If these are business bank statements is there something like a profit and loss account you can reconcile the sums against?

I think you have to weigh up the chances that any of this would make a difference to any final outcome before deciding how much fuss you want to make. If you do have to go back to the court for enforcement, you can ask for costs.
