Hi I''ve been divorced since may this year . Finished mediation in January where we amicably agreed finances , split of assets , children etc e. my ex sent it all to his solicitor , drew up Consent Order we both signed and agreed . The judge had query which the solicitor took weeks to deal with ! it all went back to court and i heard nothing for weeks . upon ringing the court to get an update they told me the judge had made another query that had again been sent to the solicitor !
Exs solicitor seems to take for ever to deal with these queries and my ex is reluctant to keep chasing them as he says it costs more
my main question is if we amicably agreed through mediation and we both agree to the contents of the Consent Order why is there still a problem and how much longer will this take ?
I have moved on with my life now and we are both amicable but I need to put closure and have what is legally mine
I don''t have a solicitor as don''t feel I need one as we are amicable but feel I have no power over this dragging out ! When I did have a solicitor my exs ignored her letters prompting him to sort this out .
Can I get this finalised any quicker ?
It can be as small as wording, some judges are more pedantic than others, the judge takes the time they need they cannot be rushed, if it is a minor issue i can understand why the drafting solicitor groans and thinks ill do it later.
I know of at least on judge who will ask a question, get the answer then ask another, why not ask them all from the start?, who knows but by the same token is it wise to question a judge, i doubt it.
