Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
When you settled, was there a consent order?
Sorry no I did not.
What did the consent order say about costs?
What did it say about costs?
Ok. So have you complied with the order?
ok. They can’t ask for costs. If it was a global sum and it was paid in accordance with the order then nothing additional is owing,
The consent order is a contract. If you have complied then they can not charge extra.
Especially if it was a global sum, nothing else is owing.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
But you paid the consent order sum?
Not now. It is a consent order.
You can only take it back to Court if a party has breached if.
Because the judge didn’t make the order, it was done by consent you can only appeal if
1) the decision was wrong in law
2) court procedure was not followed
3) the decision made by the judge was unreasonable
As you made the agreement then sadly there are no grounds to appeal.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
I think you have a claim, yes
Does that clarify?
