Consent Order-couple of queries was created by Ebonee67
I have had my final hearing and now a sealed consent order .
Am hoping someone on here can help with a couple of queries:
I have a Mesher order 49/51 in my favour with the triggers being my youngest turning 18 or leaving secondary education, whichever is later or me remarrying.
I answered my Form E question with regard to co-habiting within the next 6 months as a no in Dec 14. My Barrister advised that unless I was 100% sure this was going to happen then the answer should be no. The FH was in November 2015 and the answer to this question was still no, although not directly asked, I presume if the situation had changed or if I was intending to change then as part of my continued disclosure I would have advised Solicitor?
My Solicitor has since advised me that I shouldn''t co-habit within the next 6 months.
I am just a little confused as there is no mention of co-habiting in the consent order so I was of the impression from Barrister that I could now do it as soon as I wanted to. Mixed messages? And what would be the consequences of doing so if my Solicitor is correct?

Do you intend to live with a new partner within the next six months?

One part of Form E is a tick box asking if you intend to live with someone within six months and another part asks if you can foresee any major changes, eg living with someone, but doesn''t give timescales.

If you move someone in straight away your ex might argue that this was always your intention and the consent order should be set aside and a new one agreed.

I didn''t intend to as my new partner was married and stil living with his family.
Things have changed (long story) now and he has moved out and is living in rented accomodation.
I am happy to wait 6 months or more to let him sort himself out but was just wondering if that was necessary?

Not an expert but might make everyones lives easier if you wait until his consent order is fully sorted and then see how you all feel.

Thanks ''Wy'' I hear what you are saying but I don''t think divorce is top of his or his wifes list right now-separation yes-obviously but not divorce. I think they may opt for 2 years separation - and although I have been through a lengthy divorce myself I don''t know much about separation - is there any need for a consent order until the 2 years is up and proceedings begun?
