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 Everyone,

Just trying to launch a website that has the same content as Bailii.org but focuses specifically on divorce. Apparently our adverts violate their marketing policies as our offer is "too good to be true!" Personally I think they're realistic. Would really value some feedback from anyone on here.

Best wishes,

John

This is a family law website to help people with family law issues, not a marketing or advertising agency! If you are having issues with social media platforms, then you need to take it up with them - or at least listen to the feedback they have given and take it on board for future adverts.

Remember, BAILII is a non-profit charitable organisation and is funded only by donations and provides an immensely valuable resource - for free/ On a personal level, I think that reproducing BAILI content on your own website is erroneous, at the very least.

From BAILI FAQ page:
Q. Does it infringe copyright for a user to copy materials and to display them on the user's own website?
The copyright terms applicable to material on BAILII's website are shown here: www.bailii.org/bailii/copyright.html.

Reproduction of statutes and of the RTF versions of judgments may in some cases be permitted by third-party copyright owners (see below). While BAILII itself cannot authorise this, BAILII does not object to the copying of small numbers of individual statutes and RTF versions of judgments for publication on the user's own web site.

BAILII does not otherwise permit users to copy materials and to display them on the user's own website. There are a number of reasons:

Copyright in the hypertext markup and all other presentational / value added aspects rests with BAILII and the authors of the software tools used.
Copyright in the original text of judgments belongs to third parties (for example Crown Copyright), and BAILII does not have the right to authorise further copying of text. For details of relevant copyright policies see:
United Kingdom Crown Copyright materials:
Use licences and copyright notice
Scottish judgments: copyright notice
Northern Ireland judgments: copyright notice
Irish judgments: copyright notice
European Union Materials: copyright notice
European Court of Human Rights: copyright notice
If the text of a judgment is amended by the Judge or by the court after a user has made a copy, the copied version will not show the amendments which have been made.
The online version on BAILII has hyperlinks to judgments that are cited within the judgment in question.
Extensive copying of BAILII material by robots and web spiders puts an excessive load on BAILII's servers, and lowers the quality of service for all users.
BAILII is a small charity and needs to be able to show usage statistics to maintain sponsorship. If organisations reconstitute portions of BAILII or send batches of judgments they've copied from BAILII to others, this diminishes our usage figures.

Thanks for you reply, but we weren't intending to use Bailii material but rather gather our own. Facebook and Twitter don't bother listening to your explanations they just block you unfortunately. I'll delete the thread as didn't wish to cause any annoyance.

Please don't delete the thread - only the moderating team should delete threads.

In your first post you said

launch a website that has the same content as Bailii.org

but you are saying that that's not the case? Sounds very muddled.

In any case, this matter isn't really something we can help with - it's a matter for you to address with the relevant social media companies.

OK thanks. Hopefully admin will see the thread and delete it if they think appropriate. Otherwise I'll just leave it and it will disappear out of sight soon enough.
