Clean Break

Hi, we have had our divorce approved and the conditional order is due in October. We have very similar incomes, we have a property each of similar values, we have similar pension values, no dependant children and even have similar cars. We are completely amicable about the whole split and have divided everything to the satisfaction of both. What is the simplest way to get a clean break at the time of applying the decree absolute?

Hi Lee,

Thank you for contacting amicable.

It's great to hear that you've been able to reach an agreement amicably over dividing your money and property.

As you're in agreement over your financial split, you can ask the court to make your financial arrangements legally binding through a consent order. The consent order document outlines any declarations, undertakings and orders and how your money and property are to be divided following your divorce. The document will usually include a final order dismissing any future claims (a clean break clause).

You can submit a draft consent order to court after you receive your decree nisi certificate from the court (this is called the conditional order under the no-fault divorce system).

We charge a fixed fee of £900 plus the £53 court fee to prepare couples consent orders and manage the court process on your behalf. You can start your consent order by signing up for the service by clicking here.
