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.

Related to this post: I see a reference to Divorce Recovery Workshop in another thread. I attended one of their courses at which I constantly recommended Wikivorce.

I will be going on their training to be able to help at/provide the workshops.

I met some great people and my overall impression is that it helped me a lot. I made some friends and established a social life through the group - a sort of reality Wiki.

I do have some views about how it could be improved but would not like to disclose them here.

Thankyou Chris :)

And Mitchum I would be genuinely interested in any feedback that you have on DRW as we are in discussions about closer connections between Wikivorce and DRW. It would be very useful for me to hear a first hand account of a participant's experience of their workshops. Could you possibly send me a PM with some feedback? Thanks, Ian

Sending an email to your local council is a quick and easy way to help, I'v attached a file with the relevant email address for all the UK councils so all you need to do now is find your council in the list and send them an email.

Thanks saffy, I'm sure the more emails they receive the more notice the councils will take.

Shelter (Scotland) have agreed to add us to thier links section :)

It would be really, really helpful if everyone could contact even just one organisation/local authority - the more links we have on other sites, the easier it is for people to find us - and we all know how beneficial Wikivorce has been to us, help us to help those who need us find us.
