Myself and my ex don't have anything that we share ownership of, but I'm, going to get a consent order drawn up as I have a lot more personal savings, and earn more than she does.
She doesn't have any desire to take what's mine - but I'd like this made legally binding with a consent order.
When looking at the Form A, I'm asked to select from a number of options to state why I'm filling out the form - but I can't see any option that meets my needs.
In addition, section 2 asks me to state why I'm claiming an exemption for attending a MIAM (I'm doing this because it's not necessary when getting a consent order), but there's no option to select this.
There is a simpler way that I use if both parties are agreed. So once you have a consent order that has been agreed and signed by both you and your ex, and the D81 Form completed and signed.
Then write a letter to the court, saying you have agreed a financial settlement and apply to the court for approval of the terms of Settlement. Enclosing the signed Consent Order and one copy, a completed and signed D81 Form and the Court Fee.
The court will often approve the order without attendance, although if they are uncertain about the terms then the court may list a very short hearing to ensure both parties know what they are agreeing to.
