You have signed a consent order which was ruled by the Courts unfortunately. You can ask your solicitor to bring a motion to have the matter brought back before the judge.
The Judge will be most aggrieved that you have done this and you will need a very comprehensive and substantive explanation as to how you were pressured. For Example, any suggestion that your solicitor or barrister pressured you will not be entertained unless substantiated by compelling evidence or if the consent order is grossly unfair
The opposite side, will be seeking to confirm that order and it is most unlikely the court will set it aside. You will have an uphill climb on this one I am afraid
putting it aside, can i bring these matters up at the Divorce proceedings or in the interim can i go back with a variance in maintenance request?
Thanks Ronan. Once this order is signed off, how long do i have to wait before i can apply to vary maintenance?
last question to bother you with Ronan, because it is a judicial separation as opposed to a separation agreement, does this make it more of an uphill battle to argue points at divorce stage? (separate to maintenance)
sorry Ronan just to clarify, even with it being a judicial separation as opposed to a separation agreement, is one more upheld than the other?
