Consent orders

2.72.—(1) Subject to paragraphs (2) and (3), there shall be lodged with every application for a consent order under any of Articles 25, 26 or 29 of the Order of 1978, a draft of the order in the terms sought, endorsed with a statement signed by the respondent to the application signifying his agreement, and a statement of information which may be made in more than one document and shall include:

(a)particulars of the duration of the marriage, the age of each party and of any minor or dependant child of the family;

(b)an estimate in summary form of the approximate amount or value of the capital resources and net income of each party and of any minor child of the family;

(c)what arrangements are intended for the accommodation of each of the parties and any minor child of the family;

(d)whether either party has remarried or has any present intention to marry or to cohabit with another person;

(e)where the terms of the order provide for a transfer of property, a statement confirming that any mortgagee of that property has been served with notice of the application and that no objection to such a transfer has been made by the mortgagee within 14 days from such service; and

(f)any other especially significant matters.

(2) Where an application is made for a consent order varying an order for periodical payments, paragraph (1) shall be sufficiently complied with if the statement of information required to be lodged with the application includes only the information in respect of net income mentioned in paragraph (1)(b), and an application for a consent order for interim periodical payments pending the determination of an application for ancillary relief may be made in like manner.

(3) Where the parties attend the hearing of an application for financial relief the court may dispense with the filing of a draft of the order and a statement of information in accordance with paragraph (1) and give directions for:

(a)the order to be drawn; and

(b)the information which would otherwise be required to be given, in such manner as it sees fit.
