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.

I've often pondered since my divorce started if it would be possible to start some kind of divorce co-op where all members would donate towards each other and have a Wikivorce solicitor??? Opinions please???

I'd suggested elsewhere; the option of buying 'Divorce Insurance'. When i married (earlier this year) I had many flyers for 'Wedding Insurance', My guess is someone may have thought about this; but looking at Divorce stats, my guess is they'd be paying through the nose on claims!

Nice idea, but me thinks the 'pot' would be empty!

considering how many marriages end in Divorce now I think the 'insurance' idea could be a goer, but It could be an expensive one to pay for, how many insurance companies would offer to pay out on over a third of claims for a pittance of a premium? lol

Just thinking given the divorce rate I think the premiums would be a bit pricey. However if every member on this site paid £10 a week thats 53 thousand pounds a week.....how many full time solicitors would that pay for? and how much of a bargian would £40 a month be against what forum users are paying now? Also solicitors engaged by Wikivorce would have a wealth of information to draw on.
