Hi FDR should have been tomorrow, however myself and stbx have managed to agree a Consent Order. FDR has been adjourned now for six weeks. Consent Order went in at the last minute friday afternoon.
At this point full disclosure has been made via form E''s and both parties have filed these at court.
Judge looked at Consent Order today, prior to the hearing that was scheduled for tomorrow but will not stamp it as i had not filled in form D81.
All the information is already with the court in form E so my question is it the case the judge is just being pedantic or is this cause for concern in that she may not agree the order.
I have now sent a Form D81 to the court (i had not realised there would be a requirement to do so as form E had been filed)
Any ideas on how long i may have to wait to see if Consent Order has been approved?
The judge is not being pedantic, if you lodge a Consent Order other than during a hearing D81 is actually required, so if you had the FDR and agreed ok no need, present a CO pre- hearing and you need the D81, if you call the court they should be able to tell you how long it should take, ish.
