What is a consent order?
If you have processed your divorce to decree nisi through a solicitor, yourselves or an internet company and have agreed the financial arrangements, you may want a solicitor to draft this agreement into a consent order. A consent order not only makes what you have agreed legally binding, it also stops any future claims that could arise years after your divorce is finalised.
A high street solicitor will charge over £1000 plus VAT for a consent order.
If you wish, you can purchase a clean break consent order with any of our divorce packages for £399 per person.
Our solicitors then draft the document into a legally binding consent order for you both to check and sign and then they will submit this to the court.
There are HMCTS court fees of £50 to process a consent order.
