what is a consent to seperate form? i have just seperated neither of us wants a long exspensive seperation aND DIVORCE if we both agree on sharing everthing can we do this I am a woman what do we need to do?HELP
I have never heard of a consent to separate form ! It is possible to have a Separation Agreement, and the parties might want that for a number of reasons ; they might want a trial separation; they may want to live apart and divorce by consent after two years; the parties may have religious objections to divorce; and so on. But if both of you want a divorce, and one of you has grounds for it, then I agree,a separation agreement is just additional and unnecessary expense.
If you are agreed as to how your finances are to be split, it is possible for you, during the course of the divorce process. to apply to the Court for an order, which incorporates the terms you have agreed and is then legally binding, leaving you both free to get on with your life. This is neither particularly difficult or expensive, but it's important for you to understand that you have to give the Court basic details about your finances, and the Court must be satisfied the agreement is fair to you both before the judge will sign it off.
