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.

You are only delaying the inevitable. He will presumably apply to court to change the asking price. A house is only worth what someone will pay for it, there is no such thing as a "firm valuation figure".

So you can delay it by stalling in this way, but you cannot prevent it from happening. And if a court application is made, you may be liable for a costs order. If a costs order is likely then you would be better off to co-operate with a sale.

The post has been edited by the original poster, and the question removed. Sometimes people do this after they get their advice, to remove information they regard as personal.

Personally I find it quite annoying when they do this, since others in a similar situation may have found it helpful. Oh well.

The poster was wanting to stay in the FMH even though there was a court order for its sale, and was not prepared to lower the price to a more realistic figure, even though it had had no interest at the current price for 2 years.

That is the same issue I have with my ex-wife. 2 Estate Agents have said the hous eprice needs to come down by £20k and she flatly refuses to accept this, so back off to the Judge we go
