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.

How reliable is LinkedIn?
My "newly retired" "jobless" "redundant" "unemployable" ex who has stopped paying maintenance with immediate effect "because of early retirement" is reported on LinkedIn to have started a new lucrative job - I can only imagine that information had to come from him?

yes it comes from him. Is the maintenance paid under a Consent Order? If its SM then he shoudl be applying for a variation rather than just stopping.

Thanks - I thought it had to be that way.
Our Consent Order says maintenance stops when he retires - he''s told me that he''s retired and won''t pay me any more but in fact he''s back at work.

If it says on there that he has started a new job he would have had to have put that on himself. How likely is he to just be putting this on there to wind you up? It''s should be pretty easy to establish that he is earning via your solicitor. You can''t hide money easily unless you are very very rich.

Assuming the information is correct, presumably he''s going to argue over definitions of ''retire''. He has in fact retired from one job, even though he has taken another. I can see the reasoning - but it flies in the face of common sense, so I doubt it will work. I think you need a lawyer''s opinion - a letter from a solicitor would seem to be in order.
