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.

she had to file all her in-comings, when she filed her paperwork for the financial settlement.

my question isn't that she is getting benefit's.

but that she has had all that money, not declared it or paid income TAX.

also I have proof of all the cash deposits in to the bank.

No I've never said that, and please don't put words in my mouth.

I suggest you re-read Spinit's advice earlier in the thread.

Ask yourself what you aim to achieve with your proposed course of action - how will this impact on your children, and will it impact on arrangements for your children (ie if Mum knows you've reported her for alleged fraud, would she be likely to take action that impedes on your time with the children)?

If she is receiving PIP, she is still able to earn money as well as receiving that benefit.

I don't wish to achieve anything out of this, but would like her to pay back what is due to the TAX payers of this country.

we have no kids that will have any impact from this, more likely to be happier that she need to repay money that she shouldn't of taken.

I am not interested on what she can do going forward, just need to find some one that will look into this.

Kind Regards.

So do you normally go around catching benefit cheats protecting the taxpayer or is this a one off?

" the only thing left is, to sell the house, which she is dragging out" - The number of posts we have on here of people complaining about this exact situation is ridiculous, there are so many ways your ex could mess around and delay the sale literally for years and there would be little you could do.

So I understand the motivation to report her, I would want to do the same but to do that now is literally like shooting yourself in the foot. Wait until the house is sold, get all your evidence of fraud setup given if that's what she is up to there's no time limit on being able to report that. Then if you still feel the same once the house is sold, then go and report it. Actually if what you are saying is true then leaving it longer makes it worse for her eventually.

Anyhow if you want to inflame the situation and drag out your divorce and continue having involvement with your ex which is maybe what you are trying to do in a subconscious way then go right ahead and report her tomorrow.

No one is saying that.

The decision to report, and timing, is entirely yours but you may have to face a back lash if you do it right now.

From what you say you feel that she has been swinging the lead for years so if you really do feel you must report it maybe wait until your divorce is finalised?

The outcome will be the same if she is found to be cheating.
