Any help appreciated!
My wife and I are no longer living together and divorce is 99.9% certain. If we agree to a Separation Agreement now regarding our assets and finances, is it worth getting a Consent Order approved after applying for divorce? Will the consent order give me more protection than the Separation Agreement? And if a separation agreement is in place, is there a set time when the transfer of funds/ownership takes place - at the time of signing, the time of divorce, or is a date set in the separation agreement?
Yes when you get a divorce you need to get a Consent Order. This means that putting time and effort into getting a Separation Agreement is usually a waste. You might as well just divorce and get a consent order.
