Why do I need a consent order?
There are many reasons as to why you should consider obtaining a financial consent order and below we will outline the main reasons.
If you are selling property, or transferring property, making a pension sharing order or paying over money, then you are advised to obtain a consent order, to make sure the other party carries out what they have said.
Once the consent order has been agreed and filed at court, neither you nor your spouse will be able to file claims against each other, which protects your future after the divorce.
The main reasons why people usually choose to obtain a financial consent order is because they want the security of knowing that what they have agreed before the divorce, is what they will get after the divorce.
