Separated 2008, agreed split if finances and matters relating to children at the time.
Commenced divorce precedings this year, Nisi through in the summer, got consent order drafted and sign by us both and couple of weeks ago submitted (at the same time, following info request to court as to whether ok to submit together) Consent order & form D81 together with request for Absolute form D36 and payment for both.
Just received in the post this morning certification of absolute D37.
BUT nothing re the consent order.

Will this just be admin and it will be in the system?
Would you expect them to be returned separately?

Will call the court on Monday, but just want to set my mind at rest really.

The DA is purely administrative, handled by court staff. The consent order needs the approval of a judge, which is why it will take longer. Depends on the court how long it will take, but give it 3-4 weeks before you start to chase the court.

That is what I suspected, but just had an "uh-oh" at opening the post.
Thanks.
