Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first.
Are there any ongoing negotiations regarding the financial settlement?
What assets does your ex have?
Is he working?
How do you think he will be able to pay?
My concern is that the court will not force your ex to borrow money to pay you.
The best that you are likely to achieve is a monthly payment from his benefits
However the other possibilities are
1. Warrant of Control - sending the bailiffs in to seize his goods if he does not pay - but that assumes he has belongings worth selling
2. Third party Debt Order - if you know he has money in a bank account or someone owes him money then this is an option
You can ask the court to decide the way forward using this form
Please ask if you need further details
