Do I really need a solicitor to do the divorce or does the wiki service work just fine? There seems to be a big difference in costs. Any experiences?
Why do some people get a solicitor and others do it online?
Our finances are quite complex so likely I think I''ll need a solicitor to help resolve (plus not sure husband will be completely accommodating on the financial front).
The most important factor is whether you can come to an agreement with your STBX about the finances. If you can, then you can probably do it online, no matter how complicated it is. If you can''t come to an agreement then that is where the problems arise.
Can you do it yourself or do you need a solicitor? Well that is like asking if you can fix your car yourself. Some people can. Some people try, and make the problem worse. Some people choose to pay a mechanic.
The wiki service is for people who have an agreement, but not for contested matters.
If you both agree to divorce as Charles says its easy, if the spouse you are asking for a divorce wont play ball it costs more.
Many people confuse issues, there are three main separate issues and the proceedings are again separate, so we have the divorce to end the marriage, contact issues with children, and the money side of divorce.
The divorce can be dealt with for £179 through wiki, but this must be two people who agree to divorce, and all this accomplishes is divorce.
Most members don`t know wiki does offer fixed price packs for those who need courts help to sort the money side out, but they cost lots of dosh, in fact if it goes all the way to a final hearing think 10k plus, is that good value?, well i know a few people who wish it was around when they went through the Ancillary Relief process.
If anyone has any questions about the wiki solicitor services there is a free wiki line you can call.
Actually there is a service for people who want to divorce but their other half wont agree, but it costs more because the person being asked for a divorce needs to be served with the paperwork and more applications need to be made to court.
