Consent Orders - anyone used Wikivorce or other online services?

Decree Nisi was finalised this week. We've had a written agreement about finances and children set out between us since we decided to divorce and now want to get this turned into a legally binding Consent Order to submit to the court.

The Wikivorce and other online services look affordable (£139-£200) and since we're already long agreed on everything, it seems like a good option.

Has anyone had any good or bad experience in getting Consent Orders drawn up by the Wiki lot or any others online? Any particular recommendations?

Thanks!

Oh god!!

I don't know which path to go down. Everything is pretty much sorted. Originally I was gonna go after his pension, final salary scheme, and I gave up work for some time to care for our children.

But now, I can't be bothered. I bought him out of the house. We split our small savings. I don't want his bloody pension, I just want rid and it all sorted so he can't go after my inheritance.

He gives me the minimum he can for the children. All I want is a clean break, no claim on anything in future and confirmation his maintenance will increase as his salary increases.

Is that easy/simple enough to do?

OP - another one in the same boat. Financially incontinent stbxh destroyed my savings. Although I'm the bigger earner I have no money spare to pay for legal advice so it's the diy route or nothing. No chance of ever seeing any of the money he owes me so am screwed.

Bit hacked off tbh by solicitor I saw who wanted �1.4k to fill in the divorce petition for me and send it off. Plus a further �3.5k to do the finances which he knew would equate to 25% of my total assets. I could only afford it by selling my home.

Filled in all the initial forms myself which was hardly rocket science but don't know where I go from here. Solicitor was recommended and on the resolution list. Subsequently met someone who had used the solicitor and the bill had mushroomed and they were having to pay it off monthly which was causing them to be living hand to mouth.
