My husband and I have been separated for 3 years. We have sold our family home and each have a flat. I am 62 and my husband is 69. We want to finally get divorced as he is now expecting a baby with a 36 year old woman. We are able to sort out financial arrangements ourselves and obviously at this age want to incur the least possible expense as we are both now retired. Can we just go to a solicitor and say that we have agreed a financial settlement ourselves but just need it formalised so that neither party has a further claim and then get divorced. We do not want complications, lengthy court proceedings and high costs.
Thank you that was helpful. Can you tell me what information is needed
in a consent order form?
