Hi, thank you for your question. Why did you not obtain legal advice and do you have a copy of the order (you can attach it here using the paperclip icon)?
Hi, this question remains open. Please could you provide the requested information so that I can assist you.
Thank you - I have now seen the consent order sent by email and note that you received a £75,000 lump sum in full and final settlement but there is no disclosure as to what assets there were. The order also states that you have both exchanged full and frank financial disclosure and also states that you have obtained independent legal advice. Given that the order was made "by consent" this means that you have both agreed to the settlement between you and the judge approved it as a fair settlement having taken into account all the disclosure.
Unfortunately, you will have no grounds to apply to vary or challenge the order unless you can demonstrate that there was misrepresentation or fraud by your ex-husband in his disclosure that would have led to a materially different outcome.
I appreciate that this may not be the answer you would have hoped for, but if you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you,
