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.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Wikivorce has 3 new volunteer opportunities available. We are looking for new volunteers to help out on our very busy advice line, mainly to cover holidays and other days when our full-time advisers are unavailable, or to help out for a couple of hours when our lines are very busy. We would expect that this would be no more than approximately 2 or 3 days a month, when required.

Ideally you will:

Be fully committed to the Wikivorce supportive ethos

Have a good general knowledge of family law in England/Wales

Be balanced, calm, reassuring and non-judgemental

Be able to work as part of a team

Full training will be provided by Wikivorce prior to commencing time on the advice lines. There will be two training weekends, the first in York from Friday 16 August to Sunday 18 August and the second in Winchester from Friday 23 August to Sunday 25 August (dates can possibly be changed to suit).

While this is a volunteer opportunity - and as with all roles within Wikivorce, doesn''t come with renumeration, your training, travel and hotel costs for the weekend would be met in full by Wikivorce.

This is a very exciting and unique opportunity for you to get more involved with Wikivorce – each year we take over 10,000 calls from people on our helpline; that’s 10,000 people receiving free advice each year that otherwise they may not have been able to access.

If you would like to be a part of Wikivorce’s volunteer team, or have any further questions about this opportunity, please send me a private message, or email me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Bump.

This training will also be invaluable to anyone who regularly gives advice on the forum.

Gosh, I''d love to volunteer but my spare time is taken up by my son at the moment. Maybe I could keep my hand in on the forum for now, and consider this if you need people again in a year or two?

I would love to volunteer, and put back into wiki what it has given me, but have very little knowledge about the law, will have to build that up and maybe in a few years, I can do this.

Good luck to those that can do it at the moment
