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

I have been to court several times and the last visit the judge made it clear to my EX to sell the property.Against her will.

She has agreed the for sale price and estate agents etc etc. We now have had an offer for the property. She has point blank refused it. It was up for sale at 200K - offered 190K. The offer was a good offer. She now refuses to commincate in any shape or form to myself.
How can i make her accept the offer or any other offer in the future?
I except she will only offer 100% of the asking price and we all know these days people never offer the full asking price.

Or do I have to ask the courts yet again for guidance and which price we should accept on the house in the future ?

thanks for any advice.

Tony

Courts... or if i were you..
Find out who made the offer, offer them 10K to make the full offer and be done with it.

Will save you time and money and at least you are done with her.

The judge should also have made it clear at what price the house should be sold.

Do you have anything in writing?

Thanks for the replys.

We have from the court in writing at what price to sell etc but nothing about the lowest offer that we should accept.

I have written to ask the court for this confirmed (if possible). I''ll have to see what they come back with I suppose.

Yeah, if the court says it will sell for £x then it will sell for £x. You can accept lower offers if you BOTH agree, but you can''t force her to.
