I asked my solicitor to do it as she said solicitors can do it online but she said it has got rejected on the basis that solicitor submitted it representing me as the respondent rather than My ex wife as the applicant. This is the third time my solicitor has messed up. I didn’t think there was a problem with the respondent applying for a financial Consent Order.
So it looks like I need to submit myself. My solicitor says I need to fill in Form A, but this form does not make sense and does not seem to be appropriate as my ex wife and I have already agreed terms.
If you are applying to the Court, you are the Applicant. If you put yourself as the applicant in financial proceedings you can apply for a Consent Order.
If you were the respondent in divorce proceedings you haven't made an application to the court therefore a Form A would be required, the statement of information shows a snapshot of the finances at time of the application and the Consent Order is the draft order which would seek that the court makes.
