What is a consent order? And why is it important?
When a marriage does break down, there are decisions to be made. This includes who gets what, either in a court of law or mutually without legal intervention.
Unfortunately, financial disputes can arise, with ex partners even returning and claiming assets at a later date.
What is a consent order?
A consent order is a legal document which finalises financial matters in a divorce. With one, your partner could return years later to make a financial claim.
What advantages does it have?
A consent order is a cost effective way of getting your financial divorce settlement in writing.
The order’s intention is to set out a mutual agreement between yourself and your spouse regarding financial matters. This ensures neither party can return and make a financial claim against the other at a later date.
What is included?
- The home you shared together
- Personal property
- Other assets
- Child Maintenance
- Private healthcare, insurance and fees
- Termination upon death
