he called a direction meeting because Faye had written to the courts after signing the order to say that she had signed under pressure from me(not true) and her family, so the judge ordered a directions meeting, i went along expecting to put my case but he said "i have a consent order which one party doesn't consent to is that right" Faye said yes, he then said "in that case it is not approved, that's all go away and discuss it"..as we walked out he said "i must say i would have been reluctant to sign it as it is not an even and fair split"...i didn't have a chance to talk,so he didn't know any of the circumstances.
that wasn't helpful, but as i said i offered £125,000 not accepted, now she has started court proceedings, i have now offered the full amount which i am funding from my pension(a £50,000 lump sum) and savings so that i do not need to sell the house....
at time of split/first consent orderproperty £250,000
2 company pensions about the same size total £297,905
faye had £26,000 in premium bonds that i had put in her name
one pension (approx £150,000) has gone into pension protection fund, so valued at 90% and i've drawn that early at a discount to give me a lump sum £46,000 and £500 (before tax) a month to pay Faye off
plus i have a new company pension of approx 1 year worth about £10,000
and i've saved about £3,000 since the divorce (not spending on her)
Also she has spent £20,000 and has £6,000 left
so my assets are a bit more since divorce and hers are less because she hasn't got herself a job
while we were together it was the one that went into the PPF, only 5 years of the 6 year marriage as the company (and pension) went into administation for a year...i have to go offline for a few hours now
at the moment she wanted, and I have offered £150,000, she doesn't care where it comes from, it just so happens it's better for me to take the lump out of my pension rather than get a mortgage......
what my concern right now is should I be signing the AN1 land registry form as I've been put on notice by her solicitor to do by Monday, and fill out the E form as requested.
if she accepts £150,000, can she not just cancel the court application, and make out a consent order...??
ok thank you,
just for clarification, I have 3 company pensions, one was frozen before we even met (15 years worth), and the second was gained after we met, and while we lived together and then for the period of the marriage (6 years), the 3rd is only short (1 year) obviously she can claim against the married years and possibly the years co-habiting...can she claim against my first pension which was earned and frozen before we even met....thanks
ps she hasn't contacted me yet since my offer of the full amount last night
A quick question,
As a recap we were divorced 6 months ago, but didn't agree the financial settlement, so her solicitor wanted full disclosure and AN1 form completed (which I did as home was in my sole name).I have just agreed her demands and signed consent order...my question is simple...once the consent order is approved and finances settled do I need to do anything about the land register as the AN1 form which registered her interest in the property ?
The signed consent order has been lodged with the courts by Faye's solicitors nearly 2 weeks ago, I haven't heard anything yet, but my question concerns Form E, I was instructed to send it to the courts by this Wednesday 9th April, I hadn't done this yet because we have agreed terms via the consent order, but should I still send form E anyway.
