Myself and my stbx are doing a DIY divorce very amicably and we have drafted a Consent Order arranging our finances. He is offering me a lump sum payment and we have now both agreed on this and signed the consent order, however, we have been told mixed views about this consent order. Some have said we can not submit it to the court to be rubber stamped until the Decree Nisi date is given, some say we can send it in now even though we haven''t got our nisi date? Also, we have been told that as we have both signed the consent order, it is binding and we can proceed with the lump sum payment before it is rubber stamped by court. Although my stbx doesn''t want to pay me the lump sum until it is finalised in court, which I understand. Can anyone clear up the mixed info?
