Can anyone offer any advice? My stbx wants to do an online Clean Break divorce but i want to go thro solicitors. we seperated 2 years ago. we have a house to sell and one child (aged 16)in full time college edu. i reaslised the costs appear to be very different. has anyone gone thro the online process? are there ''add-ons''? does it actually cost what they say? He wont discuss pensions and is only quoting assests such as house and bonds. There is a vast difference in our earnings and pensions.
To be honest Dukey it scares me to death. Its not the way i would choose. I don''t know of anyone who has experienced this. You have given me some really good advice there. I will check it out but, in my heart of hearts, I really don''t want to go there. I don''t trust what my stbx is saying about our settlement and need to speak to a legal person, but on the other hand it could save money.
Coming to an agreement will save money but you can''t come to an agreement without all the facts and figures. Why not compile a list of assets - which includes pensions, insurances etc - and debts on a voluntary basis. If he''s so anxious to avoid costs he can scarcely object to disclosing all the information required.
Then look for a solicitor who gives half an hour of free advice for an opinion on a fair settlementand and post details on here (inc details of your ages, dependent children, length of marriage + any cohabitation) and see what the more knowledgeable wiki peeps can suggest?
I also was very skeptical to say the least, credit or debit card and the interweb? if it were not for the fact i had looked in to wiki in some detail i would never have used their service.
As it happens i did and it was fine and fixed price, they actually answered the phone and did what they said they would do, but its not for all, if you don`t like the idea don`t agree, its that simple, the reason i used it in the end is because the high street solicitors would have cost four times as much at least, under services you can read what others think of the service, i think its under "customer feedback".
It don`t know how many have used the wiki services but i do know its lots and lots, not hundreds way more.
As for other online services, i will say nothing, like my mam says if you have nothing good to say say nowt
