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.

Thanks for putting the link on - that made life easier - really - wiki helps one in three getting divorced in uk? - wow that is amazing and tremendous - well done Ian and other wiki''s in their various roles.

I look forward to the next link...

but really I want to scream - avoid divorce (Ok not always possible - but when it is just boredom etc that is the problem - work through it) - avoid the pain, heartache, th debt etc. - settle for and value what you have got - but no-one is listening to wise ol'' scaryclairie

The full link is still uploading to Youtube (who inform it will take about 3 weeks and 12 seconds :woohoo:)

Us (or rather the boss) being on the BBC is massive - shortly afterwards, we had almost 400 guests viewing the site! The helpline has been inundated with callers who saw us on the BBC.

I agree with Scaryclairie but alas this is a hindsight wisdom for too many! But, if people are going to have to go through it, whatever the situation, Wiki is one of the best supports around and its still free!! Even the legal professional said on her bit this morning - dont use sols for the emotional support thats not what they are there for and will cost alot. Its so true, if you can work your way through the trauma, upheaval and heartache with some posts on here then you are in a position to use your legal input in a much more succinct and cost effective manner.

PS - I though the cameraman did very well given it was given it was probably filmed with a bucket of coffee in the other hand - bravo :cheer:
