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 used it, so did the guy I work with (he''s not a wiki), they ask what you would like to happen and who you want to be incharge of your estate, I did it by email, took a few days to get a draft to approve, then a final copy, it''s quite post actually, oh and they thought of a few things I hadn''t, not bad for under £50.

I have already had a will made out, even though the divorce isnt done yet. In essence it means that everything will go to my son. The house sale will continue, to pay the mortgage, and my share along with any money from my pension''s death in service benefit will be held in trust until my son is old enough.

I was advised that STBX couyld contest the will, but that isnt really my problem. I''ll be dead. Though I may just come back as a zombie and eat her if she does.

Hi

Is the wiki service suitable for potentially complex situations?

My partner and I co-habit and are long term partners, his ex wife has a claim under the dependants act (specified in court order due to joint lives global maint in court order), he has no contact with his 2 siblings or his father (mother deceased), has 3 kids none of whom he is in contact with. We own a property jointly.

He doesn''t want to leave anything to any of them (will probably leave a nominal amount to kids) but can he specifically disinherit the others (especially ex wife)? If so, can a wiki will account for that adequately or would a sol have to draw it up?

Thanks,

EA

Wills.... Hmmm I have mine done & dusted. Me & my 2 boys.

Most importantly I have appointed a guardian and substitute if all fails in event of my early demise (not surprising re stress)..

Who gets what is sorted. And then who gets what is sorted if in the event me & children die in car accident etc horror... Eg do you want ur ***** aunt sister to get ur legacy? No!

It has to be done or ur worst enemy cld get..

It''s a relief to know hopefully my wishes are sorted.. And the dogs home will be ok lol . X
