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.

Hello :)
I''m looking to arrange a divorce as cost effectively as possible as I''m on a very low income. I was looking at using Managed Divorce UK but then read some worrying reviews!
I''m now unsure what is a safe company to use.
Can anyone offer advice?
Thanks

If your thinking about using an online service its always wise to do some digging, for example google complaints then the name of the service provider, if you find complaints, well enough said.

First question to ask is if i pay you money does a solicitor do the work from start to finish, if they say no, well enough said.

Wikivorce is the only government funded site there is online, and they provide a solicitor service from start to finish.

A divorce is £179

With a Consent Order its £279

Both plus court costs of course.

You can call and ask about the service and the call is free 0800 44886644

Thank you, Wikivorce is looking like a good option at the moment.

It''s a minefield out there!

If it makes you feel any better i used the service a few years ago without any problems, and i did lots of homework before i paid anyone online.
