Court timescale was created by Choccielover
Has anyone any recent experience of having a consent order looked at in Bury St Edmunds and how long did it take?
It appears only urgent cases are being considered at present.
Can anyone also explain why it apparently takes 3 months to get to the judge and then another couple of months to be processed by admin, isnt any of this dealt with electronically?
I appreciate times are difficult at present but need some hope for the future.

Mine was submitted 28 Jan and I got the consent order back dated 9 April from BSE. Didn't take that timescale at least. Just waiting for the absolute now...

Mine was sent 28th February and was sealed on 2nd April, I received it this week, so happy as my solicitor had advised there were days of 3 to 4 months, and that was before coronavirus, now applying for absolute and so happy can finally move on, good luck

That was quick! Thanks for reply, mine was sent week after so I now have hope that it might not take 6 months as I had feared. I cant wait to have it all sorted, hope the absolute doesn't take long.
