I am in a situtation where I am fighting for joint residence of my son.
We have come to an agreement with the otherside and are proposing to conclude the matter by way of a consent order.
The order has been drafted in two sections, the first section states "it is recorded" and is followed by things like which school my son will attend and what happens on holidays.
The second part states "it is ordered by consent" and is followed by the fact the we have joint residency of my son and what his residence arrangements are between myself and my ex-partner.
I am just trying to find out if all of the order should be under the second section, I have been told that the reason it is split in this way is because the second section has statutory authority where as those points agreed under the first section are simply contractual.
So I am trying to find out if I am right in believeing that the Court has statutory authourity to make any order and that all of the order should ordered by consent and not recorded?
