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.

It's been on my mind now for quite a few weeks to change my name. When I first joined Wiki I was broken, my world had fallen apart and the future was scary, very scary !!

With the help of Wiki and the wonderful people on here, it has helped me become the man I am now. A man who is happy again and has a future to look forward to and dreams to fulfil.

We all have difficult times in our lives but we must learn from them and take the positive from them and leave the negative behind.

I can't believe some of the blogs I have read on here and what some of you have gone through, at times I have had tears in my eyes and felt so sorry for some of you but I have taken strength from these blogs and learnt so much about being a better person.

So why have I chosen to ''Phoenix'' ?,Simple, Near the end of the Phoenix's life, it builds itself a nest that it then ignites,both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, phoenix arises.

This represents where I am now, I have ignited my old life which is now just ashes and have started my new life, I am a new person, ''the new phoenix'' a person full of hope for the future.

How great to see a fellow wikiite rise from the ashes.

I love it when people change their name to something happy and positive, seems there's hope for us all.

Good on you.

Agreed - well done broken!

Perhaps all of us still in the mire should think of what our new names should be when this is all over ...

Maybe mine should be Gotenoughnow ;)
