Sorry, after going to the court, the paperwork goes to the solicitor...it should say. I was waiting for something in the mail, only for it to have been languishing in solicitor's tray for very long time.
Yes, all mine went together. It's normal practice. I think I paid £90 court fees. My solicitor has to fill out a covering letter linking the application for the absolute to the Nisi, plus consent order, plus application for out of time. All paperwork then goes to the solicitor, when signed and sealed. The consent order was an anti climax after it taking so long for exH to sign, as the judge simply writes his name at the top and stamps it, very faintly in my case! I was under the impression it would be sealed with candle wax, or such like...Clearly been watching too much Crown Court!
I took mine to court, but the solicitor had done all of the paperwork, including applying for absolute out of time. Don't forget that the consent order only becomes valid at the time the absolute is sealed. I put mine in the drop box on court foyer. Your local court will have it's own procedure. Good luck!
Consent order has been drawn up by solicitor. STBXH has signed and we have completed D81. Can I lodge all this in court myself (and if so, how?) or does my solicitor need to do it? (I want to save solicitor's fees if I can)
