My partner went to a solicitor to get a Clean Break order written up..to cut a long story short,she has gone against everything he asked her to do and cost him more than he was told because of her sending letters to and fro etc, that he didn''t ask her to do. The upshot is that the extra work involved to file the Consent Order is going to cost an extra £158 which he can''t afford, so he has told her not to do any more work...Can he file the consent order at the court himself.
Solicitors shouldn''t exceed costs estimates without notifying a client in writing before doing so. Is the order drafted now to show what has actually been agreed between your partner and his ex? You need to bear in mind that the court has limited powers to make orders. If something was agreed which the court doesn''t have the power to order, it has to be dealt with in another way. The solicitor may have been forced to draft the order in a particular way as a result.
Hi Johnathan, yes the Consent Order has been draughted and has been sent to his ex wifes solicitor for her to sign but hasn''t come back yet.
Everything was straight forward, he wants nothing of hers..he left her everything, the house was rented, he has nothing ,no pension ,no money etc , they don''t have children. All he wanted was to safeguard his future so she would have no claim on what he has in the future..simple...no..his solicitor has made it costly for him, and he doesn''t want to pay her another penny..
