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.

Hi Ruby,

Well done to Ian for bearing his soul, so to speak.

(By the way Ruby the eating of toast effect was really good!) LOL

Anyway, I too agree with wise young Scaryclaire, to anyone out there thinking of divorce for all the wrong reasons and if their problems can be solved by working at their marriages, then please try, separation and divorce is not something I would recommend to anyone! Exhaust all avenues first and if there is not other way than out, make sure it is as respectful and dignified as possible. The less acrimonious and the more amicable, the more cost effective things will be.

For the sake of any children involved, then take the high road, do what is right for them first and foremost.

Take care for now FoS x

Sadly for many divorce is reality its not something any of us could envisage after all we marry till death do us part, if it does happen money tends to be the common problem, or the lack of it more importantly.

There is lots of help and advice around, if you have the money to pay for it, the idea behind Wikivorce was to provide free help and support to absolutely anyone that needs it.

Can you imagine what would have happened five years ago if Ian had gone to the bank manager, i want to set up a free divorce and separation web site, it wont make any money and it will take years to build what do you think?, my bank manager would have said don`t let the door hit your arse on the way out.

Still i`m glad he did.

For some the grass is always greener on the other side.

I''ve no idea of statistics, but I should imagine this type of person usually comes off best financially. I would guess they are headworkers looking out for a better opportunity and making sure at the same time they get all that is going from the disintergrating marriage.

They tend to make their move when everything is in place, leaving their shocked spouse to pick up the pieces.

Agree with Stepper. Someone''s got to suffer and you can bet that part of their plan doesn''t include the words ''fair and equal''.
