Any point in having a Consent Order on divorce?

Any Point In Having A Consent Order On Divorce
Published: 18th April 2013 - Category: Consent Orders - Author: Lynne Bastow

One compelling reason: Legal finality.

What are the problems if I don’t have one?

Your ex-spouse can come back at any time in the future and make a claim against you, regardless of how much money you have given them to go away, regardless on how fair your agreed division was.

A recent case where the couple had been divorced over 10 years and the husband won the lottery resulted in him having to make a lump sum payment to his wife.

If you remarry without opening your claim (ie you are the Respondent to the divorce and do not defend nor  issue a financial application) you lose all rights to make a claim on your own remarriage.

What’s the problem with that? There was a case last year where the husband was due to receive a share of the matrimonial assets and remarried before the Consent Order was sealed by the court and lost his rights to his share.
