Finances

Myth
  Myth
“Can my husband still make a financial claim once we have both received our decreee absolute? Also if my husband had promised me in writing an amount of money as a good will gesture can he refuse to pay it and do I have to go through the courts to get the money- his solicitor is refusing to pay this too and being threathening.”

It is entirely possible for either party to make a financial claim against the other after pronouncement of Decree Absolute if no Order has been made with regards to the property/finances. In order to avoid this, it is imperative that both parties enter into a Consent Order which makes any financial settlement full, final and legally binding on both parties.

Any ‘agreement’ reached between you will not be legal unless it is incorporated into properly drafted legal document. If an agreement is reached and one party fails to adhere to it then the other party has no option but to make an application to the court for it to be dealt with. This is a last resort but if your husband (and his solicitor) are not complying with the agreement to make payment, you have no alternative but to issue proceedings accordingly.
