Decree absolute was created by kj40
So, final paperwork all gone requesting a clean break order as all finances already swapped over between us and no pension sharing etc to worry about.

We were together 15 years but only married for 4, had 2 houses (one now sold) he kept one and I got one for me so everyone all rehoused.

One child together who lives with me who is 6. Sees Dad whenever she can and we are quite amicable on this point.

My question is, if we have asked for a clean break- is the judge likely to sign this off without much scrutiny?

I''m worried he will say no as there is a disparity between my husbands income and mine- but I just wanted a small house that I could manage to mortgage by myself so I was happy with the monetary settlement as I was able to do this.

I didn''t ask for pension sharing as think it''s not fair to take this when we are not together and still quite young. (we both could remarry in the future)

Can someone tell me whether this is likely if we are both in agreement and we have already divvied up as it were?

Thanks

We are both happy with a 50/50 split but 2 judges have rejected the consent order as unfair to me ( not apparently interested in the fact that it''s what I want). We are now stuck with no idea how to proceed so all I can tell you is that no it might not be signed off with no scrutiny, I hope it is as I know how disappointed I am not to have the absolute when I thought we were sorted.

Have you had full financial disclosure and sought legal advise?

How large a difference is there between your income?

I had a consent order rejected by court and it seemed unfair to my ex on paper but morally it was fair. My ex wrote to the court saying why it had been decided to split the assets in this way and the court agreed and sealed the consent order .
