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.

I''m a respondent in a divorce petition and it seems that i''m getting shafted (excuse the expression) and i cant afford a solicitor so i''m hoping i can get some help on here to wade through the different language that is the legal system.

Welcome to Wikivorce, Uncaged.

Just fire away with any questions you have, and don''t be overwhelmed by the gobbdlygok that solicitors/court forms use - soon you will be fluent in "legalese" - and we are here to help you make sense of it all :)

HI uncaged

Sorry you find yourself here but welcome to Wiki.

Most of us start our divorce journey completely clueless about all the laws, processes and jargon. You''ve been lucky to find this site so early. I don''t know how I''d have got this far without it - so much information and incredible support from people who really do understand what I am going through.

Keep posting and good luck.
