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.

There use to be a thriving chatroom on wiki but these days it seems to be empty.
It was switched off for a while but is still running.

I think it''s busier in the evenings, but not so busy in the days. I must admit I haven''t had time to go there though as I tend to just write a few posts in the threads now.

As you know Polar, I usually log in whenever I am on my laptop - which is quite a lot of the time due to the work I do.

It is a shame, it helped me so much in July. I hope all my friends I spoke to on their are OK.

Sometimes I notice new people join who have a lot on their mind so I am glad I am usually there to help answer stuff or redirect them to the best source of information or just listen...

Yes, people still use the chatrooms, and yes, it''s true that there was a time when chat was very busy (years ago, it wasn''t unusual to find 50 people crammed into the chatrooms)

I suspect that part of the issue is that over a third of people accessing Wikivorce do so via smartphones and tablets - which don''t support the required software that chat uses. The only way round that (apart form more people using desktops/laptops to log on) is for Wikivorce to buy new and expensive chat software that allows people to access the chat facility via smartphones and tablets. I did source such software earlier this year, but the bottom line is that Wikivorce simply doesn''t have the spare finances to purchase it.

A busy, vibrant, active chatroom which has a warm, welcoming and supportive atmosphere is wonderful, and real bonus to those using the facility and benefiting form "real time" support from peers. The downside is that, in the past, there have been a high number of disputes that have required the attention of moderators - mainly sorting out personal differences and "romantic falling-outs".

That aside - the chat facility remains active 24 hours a day, it is really up to members to make the best use of the existing facility. It only takes 2 people to go into chat to encourage more to join in. Perhaps someone would like to volunteer to organise the annual Christmas Quiz?
