The judge can always reject a Consent Order, I was advised that this was less likely if we could both sign to say we had taken legal advice (we hadn't so couldn't) ours was rejected twice but easily sorted with a short appearance before a judge to assure him we knew what we were signing and considered it fair but that did of course entail delays.
We resubmitted the Consent Order as it stood each time it was rejected with a letter stating why we thought it was fair (it was rejected as the judge considered it unfair to me) we had no intention of renegotiating, we knew what we wanted. The second time we resubmitted it we received a court date where we were both asked if we understood that we should take legal advice - we said we understood but chose not to, I was asked why I considered the agreement fair (probably to make sure I knew what I had agreed to and wasn't being coerced) I explained my point of view and we were both then asked if we understood that the agreement was binding and that no appeal to change it would be possible once it was signed by the judge, we said we understood that and the judge said he would sign it, we received the sealed order a few days later.
First submission was 22/05/15 and it was sealed on 10/02/16 so about 9 months but it only cost us to have the original drafted there was no charge to resubmit or for the court appearance.
As I said we didn't want to renegotiate or make any changes, I didn't get the impression that the judge would have any interest in that he just wanted to know that we knew what we were doing, it took about 5 minutes.
Hopefully Annie2326 the questions will be easily answered and there will be little delay, I remember the feeling of stress at the time try not to worry it will all get sorted, at least you are being kept informed.
