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.


The DIY Divorce Guide is badly out of date

The guide on this site is badly out of date. For example in step one:

divorce.wikivorce.com/guides-divorce/how...-initial-checks.html

Section (c) the longest is now completely unnecessary.

There are mistakes elsewhere too.

If it cannot be updated it should be removed or people are going to be mislead.

Thank you. We are aware, and a new guide is currently being written and should be on site shortly.

I wrote a detailed guide to the new divorce process way back n March - divorce.wikivorce.com/advice/discuss-any...ault-divorce-process

Thank you, your explanation is very clear and helpful.

Could you not add a note to the top of the current one explaining it is out of date for applications (if that is the right word) made after March?

It came up in a search so people so my concern is that it might mislead people who did not know about the changes yet.

I'm just a lowly moderator, I don't have the facility to edit the webpages.

I did speak with the web manager today who have said they are working hard to make the required changes to the guide.

The current guide still needs to be available as there will be many people still using the "old" law for their divorce and may need to access it for information.
