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.

Hi Charles
Thank you for the contributions. Your advice is exactly what I was thinking. I have browsed the net for handwriting experts report but it kept pricking my mind that it may not be admissible in court if not produced on order of the court.

I have drafted an application (not sure what form to use). In my draft, I asked the court to
"Order that expert witness be jointly or in event of a party refusing, be solely appointed by other party for the purposes of examining and producing a report".

Do you think this wording is suitable under the circumstance.
I'm desperate to get his going as I have barely 6 weeks to the final hearing.

I can't tell you how grateful I am for your assistance.
Waiting for your response.

Thanks indeed for your contributions. I've always known someone must have passed through this. I'm wondering whether it may still be necessary to require my ex to write or sign anything. This is because there are already handwritten materials containing signature.
I have concluded, having read your account, that an application to the court for an order, is inevitable.
I'm seriously frightened by the cost you quoted. She's already creamed me out with our three 3 children and I'm seriously limping for money. That's why I'm looking for the most cost effective and affordable quote. Thanks for your assistance.

You need to have undisputed reference material for the expert to compare with the "forged" document. This has to be given by the person accused of the fraud and witnessed by a solicitor.

If the above is not done it would simply lead to further dispute and wasting court time.

Regarding cost: any expert witness will be costly but you must compare this against the cost of not having them and losing your case plus if proven this would almost certainly be classed as financial wrongdoing and you would have a case for costs against your ex.

Thanks for your advice.
I have made an application for handwriting expert report, as suggested by other wikis and my personal enquiry.
I can't wait to hear what the court says about my application.

It's bound to be a LIP as I'm so terribly cornered by fund.

I thank you for your advice. Will update on outcome.

Cheers
