Consent Orders in Divorce – What are they?
Depending on how well you understand divorce law and the legalities surrounding it, you may or may not know what a consent order is and what it’s used for.
A consent order is a legally binding court order that states how a divorcing couple intend to divide their assets and finances such as property, pensions and savings upon the completion of their divorce.
A consent order is a voluntary agreement that not every divorcing couple will decide to enter into, although obtaining one is advisable as it is the only way to legally protect your assets and finances after a divorce.
Obtaining a consent order is the only way to legally sever all ties from your spouse and without one you are open to future claims in the future, hence the importance of entering into a consent order after divorce.
