Consent order cost –

A guide to charges and court fees

A consent order is a legally binding agreement between a divorcing couple about how to divide their income and assets.

Crucially, it contains clauses that remove the right to apply to court for more money or property rights in the future.

These clauses are known as a clean break and the agreement has to be approved and signed by a judge to make them effective. This is why it is called a consent order. It is an agreed court order made by consent.

Consent orders vary greatly in content depending on what you have agreed. Some agreements are complicated, whilst others are straightforward.

Prices range from £500 plus VAT depending on what is involved.
