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 haven''t posted on Wiki for a long long time, but just wanted to say a quick thank you for the help this site gave me when I needed it most, and to promise everyone starting out on this horrible journey that things really do get better.

3 years ago I was on my knees, completely reeling when my wife left me and our 2 children. I truly felt that my life was over and was terrified of what the future held. I received some really good help from Wiki - good practical advice, but also amazing emotional support that saw me through some really dark days.

Fast forward 3 years and I am finally divorced, Consent Order has been sealed, finances finally getting sorted and I''m busy preparing to move now the house has been sold.

But the most amazing thing that has happened to me in this time is all thanks to Wiki. There are a lot of good people here, but one in particular really helped me smile again. We clicked straight away and used to message each other regularly. After a while we began talking on the phone, then a few months down the line we actually met up. The rest is history! We have now been together for nearly 2 years, and I can honestly say that she is the most wonderful, kind, funny, caring person I have ever met and is absolutely beautiful inside and out. She is truly special and I absolutely love her to bits. And in case you''re wondering what that sound is... well that would be the not too distant sound of wedding bells! ;)

I hope I don''t sound too smug, I don''t mean to be, but I just want to let everybody know that even when you are just about as low as you can get and the future is just a big dark scary space, don''t give up. You never know what''s around the corner, and it could just be the best thing that has ever happened to you :)

I''m glad you''re both happy...........I still stand by my believe that if Dukey ever hears me mention the word wedding bells he is to immediately wire my nads up to a car battery ;)

All the best
