Legal advice on financial agreements in divorce

If you are divorced, you will need a court order (consent order) to make your financial agreement binding.

If you have already exchanged full financial information and reached an agreement with your spouse, we can prepare the document for you and help you obtain the order.

Our services include:

  • Taking your instructions on the agreement you have reached
  • Advising you on the implications of obtaining the order
  • Drafting the consent order and financial statement which the court requires
  • Sending the document to the court and sending the final order to you

If you haven’t reached an agreement with your spouse we can:

  • Disclose your financial details to your spouse and obtain their financial information
  • Negotiate the agreement for you
  • Attend any court hearing on your behalf.

If you would like to meet with one of our experienced family law solicitors to discuss a divorce consent order, we offer two fixed fee appointment options depending on the level of advice you require. For both options, one of our specialist divorce lawyers will meet you and give you a full assessment of your case. They will explain what your legal rights and options are, as well as what it may cost to take further legal advice. This is charged at £200 + VAT or £150 + VAT if you are meeting with one of our paralegals.
