Financial and consent orders?

Financial and consent orders?
March 05, 2021 05:39PM
Hi All,

I'm just looking over the online form to apply for a divorce and hoped that some one would kindly help me in understanding what a financial order and a consent order are and their differences.

Has I understand it a financial order is where the husband and wife cannot decide on how to split things like marital home, money and child care and ask the court to do it for them and a consent order is you can decide and get a consent order wrote up by a solicitor for the courts approval. Is that correct, or have I got wildly wrong?


Regards.

Well, a financial order and a consent order are basically the same thing (in this context anyway). They settle the financial issues arising from the marriage formally and finally. The only difference is whether it is done by agreement or not. The content of both is the same and they deal with the same things.
