Financial Consent Order & Divorce
Obtaining a Divorce can be fairly straightforward. However, this does not in truth finalise the marriage between you and your spouse. Without a Financial Consent Order reflecting the terms agreed, you remain vulnerable and run the risk of a financial claim being made against you.
Many couples decide to enter into their own agreement or obtain a document known as a “Separation Agreement”. Although they may be influential, if a claim was to be brought in the future, they are not legally binding and are unlikely to be upheld in a Court of Law.
A Financial Consent Order will sever those financial ties and any future claim will then be dismissed. Contact our Family Law Team by phoning 01535 662644 to see what your options are.
