During a divorce, it is highly recommended that both parties have a consent order. A consent order protects you against future financial claims from your former partner – claims against your home, pension, savings or income.

Did you know?
Your current earnings and assets are not the only resource an former partner can claim against? – they can also claim against your future earnings or any sudden windfall you might encounter. Pensions are also a marital asset you should seek to protect.
“Every day, thousands of people face financial claims from old partners, and in most cases, it is because the defendant assumed the divorce itself ended all financial commitments to their former partner. It does not. The process of filing a consent order is so straightforward and essentially gives you an insurance policy against huge future losses.” – Angela Lally, Head of Family Department, Best Solicitors.
