Hi all,
Just about to start out on the Divorce journey but slighly confused in which order key events are normally done. I understand the Decree nisi and Decree absolute timeline, but when is the financial consent order / final break completed. Are these normally before or after Decree absolute?

many thanks

You need to have a Decree Nisi in place to have a legally binding financial order. There is nothing to stop you reaching agreement on financial matters sooner.

The Decree Absolute normally happens after the financial order. It activates the provisions of the Order.
