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.

Its been nearly three years and still the household contents are not sorted. Transfer of Equity has all gone through and is now finally finished with me now being the sole owner of the former matrimonal home.

I want to try and now finalise the contents; however when I suggest this to ex, I recieve endless inventories of what he wants; now onto our 7th inventory. Surely this cannot go on and on.

There are things listed on his inventory which I am in agreement with but because I am not in agreement with everything else; he fails to collect. Where do I go from here?

An example is his bike and gas bar-be-que which is currently stored in my garage taking up space!
Any suggestions?

What does your Consent Order say about house contents? Are you paying a solicitor to do these 7 inventory lists, or doing it yourself?

I have self represented the last two years in all of this, the seven inventories come from my ex husband and his solicitor.

Consent Order states
"Liberty to apply in relation to the contents of the former matrimonal home"

Thanks

OK, excellent. I suggest taking some control of the matter. You hold all the cards here.

You should tell him "these are the items I am prepared to let you have (list items). Please choose one of the following 3 dates and times to collect these items (give 3 dates). If you are not available on any of these dates then please advise me of a date you can collect them. If you fail to do this or fail to respond to this correspondence within 14 days then I will put your items on the driveway for you to collect on (date and time). If you don''t collect them then the bin men will."

The only way he can force you to give him any more items is to take you to court. And the costs involved for him to do so, would not be worth it for him. So chances of him doing this are zero.
