So finally, after an adjourned 1st hearing(!!!) my soon to be ex and I have come to an agreement ourselves, both in agreement the court process is a joke and complete rip off.
We want to stop the process and get this formalised.
I'm the petitioner. Does my solicitor need to draft the consent order or can his do it?
I think we need to send a form D11(?) and consent order in order for the financial remedy proceedings process to be halted?
Any other useful info gratefully appreciated. Just want the cheapest way forward now
We came to an agreement during court process but before final hearing. My solicitor said if his drafts it then it will mean I’m not paying for her time to do it, he is paying, so we let them draft it and apparently “You deliberately ran up my solicitors bill”
So either one can do it, but it would be cheaper for you if otherside did it. You get to read the draft beforehand, and can point out any errors or parts missed out.
It depends what you want from the court. If you want an order which is made by consent between the 2 parties, you can apply with Form A, a statement of information, a draft order and a court fee of £55.
If you want to abandon the process and withdraw the application you can apply to do that but there will be no financial order separating your respective claims. This would mean that a further application court be made at a later date.
