Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear, you have signed the Tomlin order and it has been sealed?
Has the Court stamped the Order?
if the court has sealed the order, then you have agreed to it.
If you only pay a part of it the other side will apply to set aside and enforce the order.
A Tomlin order is one agreed by the parties. If it has not been sealed then you can withdraw from it.
But if it has been signed then sadly you are bound by it. The court has no control about what the parties agree in such an order, but it is for you to make sure you are satisfied with it.
So if the order has not been approved by the court, you can get out of it.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
To enforce the Tomlin order.
Re contempt of court - correct. It's not a consent order by the court. It is a Tomlin order, the court does not and can not get involved in that.
The court will take the view you signed the Tomlin order, you are bound by it.
Does that clarify?
