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.


Ex ordered to pay costs

My ex has been ordered to pay me a lump sum for costs I incurred when he failed to keep to a court order. He has decided to drip feed me this money as he says he can''t afford to pay the whole amount in one go.

He is a complete liar, his monthly car payment isn''t much more than the amount he owes me and he is a company director.

What is the best way to get him to pay? Is it through the small claims court? Instruct bailiffs?

He so obviously won''t let me go and just wants to hang on to whatever he can to keep me in his life even if it means meeting in court on a monthly basis!

Ho Ho.

If he is a company director the threat of bailiffs (who can declare him bankrupt) will wake him up.

I''ve just seen this in the court literature, booklet EX50. Can I go straight to bailiffs? He would poo his pants!! He is a coward and would probably just whip out his platinum AMEX card.

Enforcement proceedings
If the court has ordered someone to pay you a sum of money or to return your goods, property or land, and they have not done so, you can issue enforcement proceedings.
Order to obtain information from a debtor

To issue an application for an order for a debtor or other person to attend court to provide information.
£50

To request Bailiff service of an order for a debtor or other person to attend court to provide information.
£100

I would like him to provide information to court because he can''t hide his income forever.
