What is a consent order and how to get one online?
Ending your marriage or civil partnership is one legal process and ending your financial ties is completely different legal process. The process of severing your financial ties is called a consent order or financial order. This blog will explain how to get a consent order online.
A consent order does two things:
- Legalises the financial arrangements that you’ve made
- Ends the possibility of claims against each other in the future
There are two different types of consent order (or financial order):
- A consent order
If you need to detail any arrangements or transfers then a full consent order is the best option. This includes things like child maintenance, transfer of property, lump sum transfers and pension sharing.
- A clean break consent order
If you have already split your finances or have no finances to split then a clean break consent order will be sufficient. A clean break consent order will end your financial relationship and stop the possibility of claims in the future.
