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.

Welcome to wikivorce.

All assets go into the marital pot for division according to need. Some things can be argued out of the pot.

How things are divided depends upon need. Other factors are taken into account - length of marriage, ages incomes etc. Disability will also be a factor.

Are the savings the only asset you have between you? Or do you have a property, pensions etc?
