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 there,

Just a quick one , I'm divorced ( very happy too ) we divorced over a year and a half ago and I hadn't heard anything so just asumed all was done ...then out of the blue paperwork from ex's solicitors arrived to say you have seven days to signed paperwork for property in France or legal action will be taken ....my question is this I don't have a solicitor anymore ...His solicitor wants me to get this paperwork signed by a Notary ..can I charge his solicitors for this inconvenience and cost ....I believe this should have been done a long time ago


Thanks in advance

If the property is to be transferred as part or an order then you will need to complete the paperwork. If the paperwork needs to be notorised now then it will most likely have needed to be notorised when the order was first made so the delay has no bearing on the request.

As far as the cost goes, if a notary is required to transfer the property to comply with the order, you will have to bear the charge in order to comply.

If you are strapped for cash you could respond by saying you will transfer the property but you have difficulties with the timescale proposed as this leaves you in financial difficulties but if they are to bear the charge this would hurry the matter along.
