Consent Order Time line for resubmission
December 26, 2020 04:07PM
Hi,

My consent order was refused after 3 months of submission.

The judge wanted me to include a clause saying that transfer of family home will be done only after full lumpsum money is paid.

I include that clause on the consent order and resubmitted to the court.

Will consent corder go back to current queue and take another 3 months to get courts attention?

Or resubmitted consent order goes on separate queue and it get processed soon? if yes, how much is usual time line for resubmitted consent order. Can we follow up and get it processed sooner
I dont want to wait for another 3 months to get consent order approved.
Thanks

Typically these things do go back to the bottom of the pile, yes, so it could easily take another three months from the time you resubmitted the order. You can 'follow it up' I suppose which may or may not have an effect. Very often it doesn't have any effect because the sort of people who process these things at courts tend to be the sort of people who don't like to be chased. You may strike it lucky - especially if it is being dealt with at a specific court rather than at one of these 'divorce units' - but it is a very hit or miss.

Thanks for quick reply. Unfortunately it is divorce unit The Family court at Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Then I don't give much for your chances of expediting it. If it had been transferred to an individual court to deal with financial issues then you would have had a sporting chance of speaking to an actual human being capable of being helpful. The problem with these so called divorce units is that they appear to be run for the convenience of their staff rather than court users. It can be difficult to get through and when you do there is much less chance of being able to speak to someone actually willing to take responsibility or to speak to the same person twice. It is a system which would have done credit to the old Soviet Union.

Thanks for reply again.
I did earlier ask for status at divorceunitbse@Justice.gov.uk, they responded after 2days, saying it has been processed. So you think sending email request to speed up after one month of resubmitting will help? as email will have past enquiry chain, so they might feel pity and push further. I heard so many manual process are computerised/automated

There is certainly nothing wrong with following these things up. Whether it gets any result is in the lap of the gods really. Personally I don't think this type of appalling level of service should go unchallenged. The courts are supposed to be there for the public rather than for the court staff after all. They do lose sight of that all too readily. If service is poor I think it is better to challenge it than sit back and simply accept it. Whether it has any effect is another matter. One can but try.
