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.

I am looking for guidance please

Can liberty to apply clause be used if contents in a Consent Order (agreed list attached to order ) have not been collected by other side for months - effectively using me as free storage and threatening legal action if damaged whilst in my possession. Can I go back to the family court ?

They are severely restricting use of my property - can I apply family court to set a time limit for collection - Consent Order states items should be ready for collection within 72 hours of being requested - at a mutually convenient time.

30 day notice to remove been refused by owner - I have date agreed 12 days after 30 day deadline - this advice is being sought Incase other side doesn’t collect on stated date as they seem to have no where to store their possessions and expect me to.

thank you

i would think it depends on the wording of the Consent Order. If it says after 72 hours of a mutually agreed date i expect you would need to wait until this is arranged. If you have a clear date for removal on the signed order then you will need to wait until he collects them. if you want them out of your way then you could possibly remove them to an out building as long as it is clean, safe and dry and items are not damaged.
