What might an ex-partner be entitled to claim in the UK if there was no financial order following divorce?
Hi, my ex and I divorced 5 years ago and never had a financial order (stupidly) now I'm considering getting one and wondered what he would be entitled to claim? I have a new mortgage with a partner, a car, small savings and pension, he also has a mortgage on a property with new partner, a car, no idea about any savings but I know he has a pension, would it be a case of him being able to claim on my new property? Car? savings and pension? Could I potentially be responsible for any other debt he's accrued since divorce also? Any help would be appreciated 🙏

Nq you both have a claim on all assets you have at this point. The debts are a bit harder as either of you would need to prove it was for the benefit of the family if its in a single name. So I wouldn't worry about the debts.

NQ. Sadly yes you are vulnerable by not having completed the consent order at the time of divorce.
