My divorce was granted on the 28th of October 2015. My

Resolved Question:

Hi, my divorce was granted on the 28th of October 2015. My settlement is £20000 for myself I have two children and their settlement is £12,200 each to be paid on a certain birthday. I didn't go for half of the family home because both the kids live there with their mother and the new man. My ex-wife has only paid me £10000. My worry is the kid's money and the rest of mine. I made my claim on the original perches prize of the house which was £90,000 and now its worth £500,000. Me getting Multiple sclerosis and her infidelity ended the marriage. I thought I was being fair and keeping the kids out of it was my main priority. I should have gone for the half, ill health and the kids stopped me from doing that. Any advice would be apricated.

Hi, thank you for your question. Was the financial settlement approved by the court and was it made by consent?

it is ordered by consent with effect from decree absolute
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for confirming. Unfortunately, if the consent order has been approved by the court you will not be able to apply to vary a lump sum settlement unless you are able to prove that there was fraud or misrepresentation by the other party that would have led to a materially different outcome than the one reached.

Hi I have received £10.000. i know i should have gone half. The kids still live with her. It wouldent been fair on them.
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.

Thanks. The court has specifically ordered for him to transfer the property to you within 56 days and upon transfer to pay you the lump sum of £20,000. If this has not been done then you would need to apply to court for enforcement of the order using form D11 and a £155 court fee to the family court.

If he does not comply with the lump sums for the children then you would need to follow the same procedure in the future.

I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
