Hi, thank you for your question. Has there been a formal settlement that has been approved by the court?
Thanks for confirming. Unfortunately, you cannot force her to come to an agreement and this must be voluntary by her - hence financial agreements outside of court's being called "consent orders" as they are agreed between parties. If her agreement to settle is not forthcoming your only option would be to pursue a court application under Form A and a £255 court fee for financial relief. This will set a strict timeframe to comply with disclosure and directions and settlements are encouraged at every stage. It may therefore be helpful to explain that this will be your only option and would substantially increase legal costs - this may assist in her reconsidering her position, especially as you are not seeking to obtain any financial gain from the property.
