Yeah I'm waiting for my hubby's CETV (he has 2 pensions - he got one through THEN ordered the other .. aarh no wonder its taking so long)I am undecided as to proceding with Absolute now while sorting out the money - I don't want him to be able to claim my money easily if I get run over tomorrow ... its for my kids lol
I thought I could get financial agreement by just submitting a Consent Order, but this article seems to indicate that we need to fill in other forms and submit further financial information?
What needs to be submitted along with the (Clean Break) Consent Order, and what costs will be incurred over and above the Sol cost for drafting consent order, and the £45 (I think?)court fee to submit it?
All I know is that when I put in the Consent Order the judge decided that he wanted to see our pension details and wants to know what percentage of the marriage assets we each have agreed on. this is despite the fact that we had agreed on a split that we were both happy with. This has caused a lot of problems and have yet to send of the pension details (only got hubby's yesterday)in the mean time he has decided that he wants more!!!!!
hubby also put in for the Absolute without telling me (i am the pertitioner) so that he can get married but i paid £45 Grrrr to request that it be delayed untill after the Consent Order is sorted. ...This also didn't please hubby!!!!
When you agree a settlement with your ex beloved you also need to provide a snap shot on assets and income when you send in the Consent Order to court.
If you both have solicitors the judge more often than not will seal the order without question, if one of you do not have a solicitor then the judge may want to know that the person with no solicitor fully understands what you are agreeing too.
A judge considering the order also has a duty to make sure one party is not under pressure to sign the order.
A judge can also question any order if he/she feels on the face of it its just not fair to one person.
So with any of the above a judge may ask for more information or ask you both to a short hearing at court just to clarify matters, it does not mean the judge is refusing the order or is obstructing an agreement by consent, its just the judge doing his/her job.
