Consent Order Only
If you have processed your divorce to decree nisi through a solicitor, yourselves or an internet company and have agreed the financial arrangements, you may want a solicitor to draft this agreement into a consent order.
A consent order not only makes what you have agreed legally binding, it also stops any future claims that could arise years after your divorce is finalised.

A high street solicitor will charge between £800 and £1,500 plus VAT for a consent order.
Surrey Mediation Service will provide you with a proforma to complete the details of your financial agreement, talk you through what had been agreed and ensure it is suitable for submission to the court. We then draft a memorandum of understanding, which lays out what has been disclosed and the agreement reached.
Our solicitors then draft the document into a legally binding consent order for you both to check and sign and then they will submit this to the court.
The fee for this service is £350 per person.
There are HMCTS court fees of £50 payable for a consent order.
