Just a quick question. Can a party submit to the other side several offers to settle that contain no material difference from previous offers?

Actually, the latest offer to settle is less than previous ones

Sorry for brevity of my original question - was posting from my phone while out and about

I am now in the last stretch before final hearing which will be for property only. Parenting was settled by consent about a year ago, although child (now a teen) has since decided to live with one parent and that situation is looking relatively settled

A party can offer as many offers as they want really.

The smallest movement from my ex was seen as a secondary offer, and it stopped me going for costs because of that. (apparently he was willing to continue to compromise).
