What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Hi, Just wondering if anyone got on well with any of the online divorce services?, I am currently separated and soon to start proceedings and there are so many I am afraid to make wrong mistake.

I am married with 2 kids and we both want amicable as possible.

Thanx

Hi Mick-Dan.

Just thought I'd let you know, that for the divorce you can actually get the papers from the court or court website yourself and they are free. I dont know much about using the on line divorce services, but the court has leaflets that help you fill in the forms step by step. When I last looked at on line divorce services they charged something like £30 to £40 just for the free papers you can get from the court! (and solicitors want anywhere between £600 to a £1000 for this process)
I know they will probably check them all for you, but you still have to fill them all in. The actual petition for divorce ect are pretty straight forward to fill in and any help you may need, just post on here and someone will answer for you.
Things like Consent Orders ect you will probably be best to use them for that if you are both agreeable to everything, and you want to keep costs down.
The Wiki team, at the moment are trying to get everyone to fill in the "divorce guide" so it will eventually be filled in right from the start of petition to final hearing. Like a step by step guide. That way everyone will have access to a complete guide to divorce from start to finish.
I wish you well for the future and hopefully someone will know, having been down the road of on line divorce and answer you question.:)

Kind ones
Louise

Ok Thanks Louise. I guess some do a Clean Break agreement too, I think one charges a total of £290 for everything which is pretty good, I also want it so my wife does have some legal advice from one, so at least in future she can't say she had none and comes back at me.
