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.

Why not if she is storing there put it all in just one room and stop sleeping on the floor - more than a bit one sided especially as she isn''t contributing to costs.

It also seems stupid to me that she gets free storage and you are paying for it.

Think you need to get on with the mortgage and the TR1 asap and put all her stuff in a big, tidy pile.

Wish I could but both the bedrooms are full of furniture and is too much to put in to any one room.

Are the rooms really that jam packed full can you not stack things up like they do when you remove furniture in a removals van?

No it is not reasonable for hr to expect you to not use the bedrooms. Nor is it reasonable for her to expect for the furniture to remain as it is but not be used.

Can you sit down with her to try to agree a compromise? (e.g. either the beds stay where they are,but you get to use them, or else they are moved, stacked againt the wall in the bedroom you are not using, and you will use the other room for yourself, or you will buy the beds from her for a reasonable second hand price, or she will move them within an agreed time period)

I would recommend that you move both beds into one room (stack them on top of each other, or against a wall)

Once the house is in your sole name, you can then give her written notice of the [reasonable] timescale within which she needs to remove her posessions , and make clear that if she does not do so within the timescale you will dispose of them. If you go down this route, then if you were to sell any items, you must provide her with the money paid.

However, as at present the house still belongs to both of you, you are in a more difficultpsoition. It would not be unreasonable to negotiate a deal whereby she makes some contribution to the mortgafge on the basis that she is still (or her furniture is still) occupying it, but in practical terms this may well cause greater problems, particulalrly if she becoems less willing to cooperate with the transfer.
