Finance Mediation Advice
Reaching a finance and property settlement is important. When a relationship ends, it is inevitable that your finances and that of your ex-partner will be tied together, in some way. You may co-own your home, a business or investments and these now need to be divided between you and your ex-partner to enable you to separate financially as well as emotionally.
If you are a divorcing couple, you will need to satisfy the courts, as part of your divorce, that you have reached a financial settlement. If children are involved, the courts will also ant to know that adequate financial provision is being made for the children. There may also be a settlement required in relation to your pensions.
For unmarried couples planning to separate, the laws are not as strict but you will still want to find agreement and settle amicably to save the costs of going to court.
How Family Mediation Can Help in Divorce Process - Consent Order Divorce
Divorce Consent Order
The consent order service offered by Family Law Mediation is a legally binding agreement. It allows both parties to have their separation formalised with the court and resolves any financial or property disputes between them. This type of agreement is known as a ‘consent order’, as both parties agree to the terms of the order before it can be issued by the court.
At Family Law Mediation, we provide mediation services to help couples reach an agreement on the terms of their divorce. We aim to reduce conflict, ensure privacy and confidentiality and facilitate a cost-effective resolution that meets both parties' interests. Our experienced mediators will guide you through the process step-by-step and provide you with all the guidance and support you need.
Once an agreement is reached, we will prepare the necessary paperwork and you can submit it to the court for a final decision. Once approved by the court, the consent order is legally binding and both parties must adhere to its terms. The divorce process can be stressful, but with Family Law Mediation’s help, you can have peace of mind knowing your separation has been handled respectfully and that any disputes are settled fairly.
