My stbx is getting the Consent Order drawn up by his solicitor this week. The settlement is that he is taking out a loan to pay me £10,000. He has proposed that the consent order say that this money is transferred and my name is removed from the deeds of the property on the same date as the court date (we would be applying for a Decree Absolute.) Would the judge accept this? Or would the finances need to be resolved beforehand?
No I haven''t done any checking but do understand that the £10,000 is below what I could potentially get if I was to hold out. However, my ex did pay the deposit on the house and we weren''t married for very long so I don''t feel it''s fair to ask for more. Plus I need the money to help with my Uni fees, the last thing I want to do is not be able to complete my degree.
