I'm just in the process of getting my divorce underway buy filling out the application on the gov.uk website, but am very confused.
As my soon-to-be ex-wife are amicable, I'm going to apply for a consent order to say that i keep what's mine, and she keeps what's hers.
On numerous sources, this is referred to as a "Financial Order".
On the Gov.UK website, under the section "Dividing your money and property", I have to choose whether I'd like to apply for a financial order. However, the way it's described, it sounds like this is only to be applied for if we DON'T agree on sharing assets...
"If you disagree with your wife about how your property, money, pensions and other assets will be split, then you can ask the court to decide for you. This includes maintenance payments.
These decisions are called 'financial orders'. You can apply for orders for yourself, and/or, if appropriate, for your children.
If you both agree on how to split your money and property and want to make it legally binding, you can apply for a 'consent order'."
Could someone please help with this, and advise on if i should be selecting this option?
Many thanks in advance!
