40 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN DIVORCE FINANCE

£350 FIXED FEE CONSENT ORDER 

At Legal & Co, we offer a fixed fee Consent Order for a simple clean break where there are no assets to share or the assets have already been shared.

THE IMPORTANCE OF A FINANCIAL CONSENT ORDER

In most cases, you will need a financial consent order in a divorce. Without a consent order dealing with financial claims, it would be possible for your spouse or ex-spouse to make a claim in the future. So, for example, if you won the lottery, on your assets, property, income, pensions or if you receive an inheritance your ex might be able to claim a share.

WHAT IS A MUTUALLY AGREED FINANCIAL SETTLEMENT

If you still have an amicable relationship with your partner it may be possible to agree a financial settlement. Having reached an agreement with regards to any property and finances we can draw up a consent order which details the agreement you have made. Both parties sign this agreement and then it is sent to the Court.

Once the Consent Order has been signed by the judge it forms a legally binding document and means that no further financial claims can be bought by either party. We can advise you on the terms of the Consent Order. It is however very important to consider the following:

  • Is the proposed settlement fair
  • Does it take into account the needs of any children and who will be looking after the children
  • Does the settlement take into account all assets held by both parties, including property, pensions, shares, business interests, savings and investments
  • Have you, or should you, obtain proper valuations for significant assets before agreeing the division between you

Having come to a mutually agreed settlement it is important to have an agreement drawn up to reflect your decision. This is done in the form of a Consent Order which once approved and sealed by the Court is a legally binding document. If it is a clean break order, this means that no further financial claims can be made by either party.

Without a consent order dealing with financial claims, it would be possible for your spouse or ex-spouse to make a claim in the future. So, for example, if you won the lottery, on your assets, property, income, pensions or if you receive an inheritance your ex might be able to claim a share.
