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.

I broke up with my partner (never married)in December 2010 and moved out of our jointly owned home.I continued to pay the mortgage for her until she left in June last year.

I was forced to move back into the property as I couldnt afford my rent plus the mortgage on top.

She told me late last year that she wanted me to buy her out for a sum of £5000. I agreed as the equity in the property is around £14000.

I then get a letter from her solicitor warning that if I did not do this then they would go to court for an order of sale and my ex would want 50% of the proceeds.

I am currently in the process of arranging a mortgage in both mine & my new partners names. I recieved a letter from her soliciotr last week stating that a court hearing was scheduled for tues 14th april, but my ex was still willng to accept the buy out described earlier. I have recieved NO notification from the court and told them this!

They have sent me photo copies of the court papers and my ex''s costs so far.

Obviously I am very shocked and am unable to get any advice until tuesday due to the bank holiday. the day of the hearing!

also in the court papers it states my ex wants rent for the property. can she do this even though I have been paying the mortgage all along?

Any advice greatly recieved!

The fourteenth of April is on Saturday, not Tuesday.
I would be asking to view original court papers so you can check the court stamp on them is genuine.
