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.

To acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate our members, we now have the feature: ''Wiki of the Week''

This week''s Wiki of the Week is .Charles.

Thanks .Charles for all you do for Wikivorce :)

• Can you please describe, briefly, how long you’ve been at Wiki and why you joined?

I joined wikivorce 5 ½ years ago after stumbling upon a post berating solicitors. Working with solicitors who sacrifice a lot to do the best for their clients I felt compelled to respond. After that I just made myself at home.

• What’s your top tip for surviving divorce?

Focus on what you can gain in the future – not what you have lost in the past.

• Do you have experience in or specialise in any particular area of Family law?

I am a law costs draftsman which brings me into contact with most areas of law. I have worked on the periphery of family law for over 20 years and work closely with family lawyers to ensure clients receive the service that they deserve.

• Do you have any short humorous stories, about yourself, you wouldn’t mind sharing? (this doesn’t have to be linked to separation or divorce)

I was responsible for my best friend on his 18th birthday but I inadvertently lost him whilst I was at a bar. It transpired that he decided to take a nap in the gutter and was removed by the police to sleep off the effects of alcohol in a central Birmingham police cell. I felt some guilt as his mother telephoned me the following day to question me upon my role in the matter. I made excuses and received no blame. However, I did manage to apologise to his mother whilst performing the best man’s speech on my friend’s weddings day - some 22 years later. It is never too late to apologise.

• What do you do to unwind/relax?

I cook to relax. I prefer savoury but am more accomplished at desserts for some reason. It works well with my mother who makes salads for my barbeques and I make desserts for hers as she loathes making desserts!

To nominate a member or yourself, please PM me, thank you

Well I for one am very glad the Gent stumbled upon Wiki, copious knowledge, and the ability to explain often what can be quite complex matters in plain English and the humour.

A most valuable asset, I hope you stay for another 5 years Charles.

If Charles stays for another 5 years, he will receive the fabled Wiki-Pen :)

Thank you for your immeasurable contributions over the years, Charles; the number of people you have helped during that time must surely run into the high thousands.
