My ex and I agree to keep what we have (married 5.5 years and separated for 4 years) as we always kept them separate

Can the judge reject clean break order we agreed in case of difference in value of assets? Can they award one of us assets to even out the difference? And how big does the difference in assets have to be for them to reject our order - 50k, 100k or more?

Hi Soke, a consent order is an order made by consent and therefore a Judge is not there to interfere, but equally, they are not simply a rubber stamp and will need to ensure your agreement is fair in the eyes of the law, which depends on several factors, such as whether both your needs are met given the clean break.
