Just wondering, don''t know if anyone can help, but when you agree on a Consent Order, do you apply for the DA before it can be sealed at court, or do you need consent order before you can Get DA?
I hope this makes sense?
It''s just I am hoping to have a Consent Order agreed in next couple of weeks, and as I understand it some sol''s can take a while to get this drawn up, so in the mean time can the DA be applied for? or do you need to have the DA in order to get the Consent order sealed etc?
I think Dukey will be able to decipher this....
Its better to get the CO sealed before applying for the DA. Mine was a complicated divorce and he failed to comply every inch of the way so delaying the DA until after the CO was signed stopped him holding it up.
Its not a legal requisite but a protective measure when dealing with a difficult stbx.
