Financial Court Orders
Many divorcing couples are not aware that a Final Order will not protect them from a claim by their ex-spouse. Even if you have legally divorced, if you do not obtain a legally binding financial order from the Court, your ex-spouse could make a financial claim against you at any time.
A financial order from the Court is a legally binding document that details how your finances will be dealt with upon divorce. If you and your ex-spouse have agreed upon how your finances should be arranged, and therefore ‘consented’ to your agreement, a Consent Order can be obtained from the Court. The Consent Order will detail how assets, property, finances (including pensions), and sometimes debt, will be split.
If you and your ex-partner do not have any assets to split, you may wish to create a Clean Break Order, which will ensure that your ex-partner cannot make any financial claim against you in future.
