Here at Wikivorce HQ we are always interested to know what you think of Wikivorce.
Has Wikivorce helped you, if so, in what way?
Oh my, how has wikivorce helped me? When I first came here I was terrified. I was homeless and my life was shattered. I spent hours in chat and on these boards. I read everything I could, every post, every blog. I read everything just in case there was something relevant in there. I think I was near the brink of breakdown when I came here. I have made some truly special friends that have helped me through my divorce
Would you recommend Wikivorce to a friend/colleague/family member?
I have done (frequently) I will continue to do so
If you are a long-term user of Wiki, what is it about Wiki that encourages you to stay?
I have now been with Wiki for 2 years ish (or maybe it's more than that) I stay because I hope I can help someone else the way I was helped
What are your personal experiences of using Wikivorce, and of the community?
Honestly.... I have 'met' people on Wiki that I haven't got on with. You will always come across one or two people who you don't get on with and whose opinion you will disagree with as a matter of principle. It is easy to get upset as divorce is such an emotional issue, but for the most part and by that I mean probably 98% of the time, I have always found Wikivorce to be a pleasant place to visit
Has using Wikivorce helped you with the legal side of divorce, or have you received emotional support that you wouldn't have received anywhere else?
DL was the resident legal bod when I joined Wiki and when I needed advice. She was amazing and helped me out so much. She made sense of forms that I didn't understand and helped me with answers to questions that would have cost me a fortune to ask my solicitor. The good thing about Wikivorce is that you can go into chat, on the blogs, on the threads and ask the same questions or repeat your story as many times as you like and because everyone here is in the same boat or has been in the same boat, nobody rolls their eyes or makes excuses to leave you alone because you are wittering on about the same subject (your divorce) again, and again and again.
There are so many special thank you's I have never given out, but they weigh heavily on me because I want to say thank you to so many people for their support and help when I was at rock bottom. *sniff* *sniff* (sorry, hanky moment)
Have you used one of our Legal Access/online divorce services?
No I never did, but I have recommended them to other people
