Financial Split (Consent Order)
#1
Stbx showed me draft consent order for finances. As per my knowledge it sounds ok. 40/60 split in her favour as agreed with an option of buying other party out. But I could not see anything mentioned that she will settle one credit card used for her needs and return deposit used to buy house. As per our mutual agreement 12k should be returned to me from the house of sale before we split it.
I have asked why it's not on the agreement and response was that her solicitor won't put it and I need to ask my solicitors to add in consent. It does not make sense. If her solicitors drafting they definitely can add a line that 12k should be returned to me and the remaining debts should to be covered from the sale of house. Once it's sorted we would split 40/60.

I am pretty sure a line can be added to the agreement, but correct me if I am wrong.

Let me know your thoughts.

I suspect they are chancing it - by omitting, they hope that you won't have the energy and patience to re-add these items. You'd be surprised what ex's do when it comes to money. Mine got her brother to threaten to slit my throat over £1000, when she was the higher earner with way more assets!

I wouldn't engage with her/solicitor with back-forth piece-meal communication. Just ask your solicitor to add these items to the draft financial consent order and then send back to the other party with a firmly worded letter to say that consent order reflects everything agreed by both parties, thus it will be sent for sealing.

Good luck.

To save time sending back and forward agreement for amendments, thought to get it right from the first time, but by the look it is not going to happen.
I don't have solicitor,but may need to use one so he could review once draft copy received.
Just to clarify: I am correct asking to add the above in consent order, and this should be done by her solicitor?
Thanks
