You can have a consent order drawn up by yourselves by a solicitor.
This is put to a judge, and judge will enquire if you have both received legal advise regarding this, you both say yes, and so long as it is obviously not one sided, it is stamped, and then neither has a claim in the future from the other.
It can be done amicably, and at reasonable cost.
Good idea. I have to share that I was meant to have a call back, but no one phoned. I then called the 01202 number and got an actual person who was very helpful.
Good luck to you and ex and common sense
The court don't have to agree they can query your agreement especially if it seems unfair to one party. I think a judge will be more likely to sign it if you can both sign to say that you've received legal advice and you can explain why you came up with the agreement. My consent order was rejected twice and we just re submitted it unchanged (with covering letters explaining why we were happy with it) and were then called to court so that we could explain to a judge why we thought it was fair as neither of us had taken legal advice. We didn't have to pay anything other than the original cost of having it drawn up and submitted but it did take 9 months.
