If consent order rejected, then what? was created by Weeone88
If a consent order is rejected because it is massively in his favour, what happens then?

Can a judge change the consent order? Do we need to change it?

Thank you

A judge won't amend the consent order, it will returned to the solicitor who submitted, along with a note as to why the consent order has been rejected. You will then have to negotiate the settlement so it meets the legal "fairness", and resubmit an amended consent order.

Alternatively, if you have both received legal advice on the original consent order and are in full agreement with the division of assets, then an explanatory note to the Judge (or a short, informal remote hearing to explain ) should be sufficient.

Have you had legal advice on the proposed consent order and its' fairness?
