My name is ***** ***** I specialise in family law. I’m happy to assist you today and I appreciate that is is important that you find a resolution as soon as possible.
Please note that our discussions on this site are for general information purposes and do not create an lawyer-client relationship. It is always recommended that you consult with a local solicitor for specific legal information.
I'll do my best to resolve this for you.
Can you tell me, the copy that you have of the consent order - does it have a court 'stamp' on it? This would be a 'sealed' copy of a court order, which is really what they are seeking I think.
If not, have you contacted the court where the order was made directly? There may be a sealed copy of the order on the court file. Though it being from 2012, I couldn't be certain that the court will still have a copy of your file - the court would advise on this point directly.
I hope that this assists?
Thanks for the confirmation. What you have is the best that you will be able to get - there isn't another level of certification above a stamped and signed copy.
What I will say is that the order can't be appealed after a 21 day period has expired unless the court specifically grants permission for an out of time appeal (very rare).
So the concern about appeal is perhaps misplaced.
I trust that this clarifies the situation for you?
Happy to assist. The only other possible avenue might be a legal opinion from a UK barrister about the watertight-ness of your court order.
Perhaps you could check with the court in Romania whether this would suffice. It may be a way to proceed.
