A consent order is a legal agreement made between divorcing or separating couples about how they will divide their money, property, and other assets. Both people agree on the terms, and then a court reviews and approves the agreement to make it legally binding. This means that once the court approves it, both parties must follow what’s written in the order.

The main benefit of a consent order is that it provides certainty and finality, ensuring that neither person can make future financial claims against the other. It’s a way to settle financial matters without going through lengthy and expensive court battles, giving both parties a clear and enforceable plan for their financial future.
