The Divorce and "simple" Consent Order option is suitable for couples who have no assets, and also for couples who have already divided up their assets. It may include details of agreed child maintenance payments.   The Divorce and "standard" Consent Order option is suitable if you still have a jointly owned property, or you plan to share a pension, or your agreement needs to include a lump sum payment or a monthly spousal maintenance payment.    If you have complex assets (trusts, business assets, overseas assets, multiple buy-to-lets) or over £1 million in assets then we can still provide a service - but please call us before ordering so we can confirm the scope of the work.

Why should I choose Wikivorce help me to get divorced?

Couples getting divorced face a difficult choice between using an expensive high street solicitor, or struggling with doing all the legal forms themselves. We offer a very welcome and affordable alternative.

divorce-decree.jpg

Our lawyer managed divorce offers the same level of service that you would expect from your local high street solicitor, there is no compromise on quality or customer service.


The price of our service is substantially lower than your local solicitor for a number of reasons: we receive government funding, we are a lean efficient organisation with very low overheads and we do a high volume of fixed price work.


What is a Consent Order? (also known as a "clean break")

When you get divorced you must agree a fair financial settlement with your spouse. Our Divorce and Financial Settlement service includes a legally binding Consent order approved by a family court.

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that describes how property, pensions, savings and debts will be divided between husband and wife on divorce.


It also prevents your ex from making financial claims against you in the future if you make money from property investment or receive an inheritance or a lottery win.

What are the benefits of choosing the Managed Divorce and Consent Order service from Wikivorce?

The traditional way to get a divorce is to use a local solicitor, but this can be very expensive. A cheaper option is to use online companies, but these are often unregulated and you have no protection if things go wrong. Wikivorce gives you the best of both worlds: a highly rated and fully regulated law firm will complete your divorce for a fraction of the cost of charged by most high street solicitors.

Are there any restrictions on who can use this service?

Yes, you must meet the following criteria to be able to use this service at the fixed price:

  • Husband and wife must both agree to the divorce.
  • One of you must live in England or Wales, OR if you live overseas, you must regard England or Wales as your "home country".
  • You must be able to provide an address for both yourself and your husband/wife.
  • You must have been married for at least 12 months.


What if I do not know where my husband or wife is living?

You can still get a dcvorce - but the first step is to find an address, through your own investigation or by hiring a tracing agent to locate your missing spouse. Please call us for more details.

What if my husband or wife does not agree to getting divorced?

You can still get a divorce - but you have to be careful about which "grounds for divorce" (or reason) you give. Usually your spouse will sign the divorce papers even if they do not want to at first, this is because "not signing" can land them with a big legal bill. In any case you can almost certainly proceed with a divorce even if they will not co-operate, but it must be done the right way. Please call us for more details. 

What if my husband or wife has moved overseas?

You can get a divorce and can probably use our basic fixed price service - please call to confirm.

What if we both live overseas?

If you are a British ex-pat and live abroad then there is a good chance you can use our fixed price divorce package, as long as you still regard England or Wales as your home country and you have not taken up formal citizenship of another country - please call to confirm.

Do we really need to get a consent order?


When a couple decide to divorce they follow a formal process to end the marriage, its actually a paper work exercise usually with a solicitor corresponding with a County Court Judge, but this only ends the marriage, what it does not deal with is the division of property and whether any maintenance should be paid or pensions shared.
 
If you divorce without a consent order then you need to be aware that your ex-spouse may be entitled to make a financial claim at any point in the future - even after many years have passed.
 
Some couples decide to divorce without a consent order because they may have nothing to share or even they are happy just to agree a division  informally, it maybe amicable and they trust each other, the problem is as time goes by that agreement may breakdown, a new partner may come along or friends and family may persuade one person that actually the agreement wasn't really fair, if this happens a claim can be made in court.
 
Its also important to remember that assets you develop after divorce potentially can be included in a claim made after divorce.
 
The simple solution to remove any uncertainty in the future is to have a solicitor write a consent order and have them send it to court to be agreed by a Judge.

What is a fair financial settlement?


Our Divorce and Consent Order service is done on the basis that husband and wife have already reached or will be able to reach an agreement on how to settle the finances in a fair way. If you need advice on what you or your ex are entitled to financially then we can provide comprehensive legal advice at a fixed fee. 

Consent Order Read the Wikivorce guide to Financial Settlements on divorce.
Our Financial Settlements guide provides a great deal of information on what the law says about fair financial settlements and how you can reach an agreement.
