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 appreciate the time you have taken to explain the situation Dukey. it goes a long way taking the time to explain rather than just getting a no in response. Your comments are appreciated and the approach you have personally will help to ensure regular contributors feel valued and thus more likely to do so in future.

As someone who has been around for a while here, it seems the site has lost a lot of experience as you rightly say people forge new lives post divorce.

If you are able to increase resources in the future, I have my chartered certificate at the ready ;)

Its all about time shoegirl (how many pairs btw) what most see on the forum is only the tip of the iceberg, for example wiki was involved in the Norgrove report right now are working with an LSC steering group looking at the effects of the upcoming demise of legal aid, there are guys who deal with media development adimn customer service site maintenance solicitors the free wiki helplines the list goes on, oh and moderation which is very time consuming, it all goes unnoticed, as it should.

Just to take one for example, site moderation, so why are moderators needed, simple really without it the site would be flooded with spammers trolls and those with agendas, wiki is the apple in many other sites eye, its jealously protected by unpaid members who keep it safe and clean, and they do such a good job rarely will members see a spam post or a troll or for want of a better word a nutter, they are usually removed in minutes often seconds from posting.

Wiki now has over 90,000 members and countless more who never join just read or call the free phone line, but the work to keep it all going is undertaken by less than ten people.

Shoegirl ill put forward your suggestion to be discuses at the next development meeting and let you know the consensus.

It''s a good point and there are experienced and qualified people on these boards who are possibly willing and able to do more to help.

I am sure you and the team will make the right decisions to ensure the site remains successful and in a position to grow with demand.

It''s a catch 22 situation I think.

Take care
