A Lawyer says ...

form 11

A FORM 11, family law rule 10.15 is called an 'Application for Consent Orders' , to this Application you annex the 'terms of settlement'.
In this Application, you can seek either parenting  or financial orders.

The parties that achieve this position should be commended, and if the proposition is reasonable, there is no reason why the court will not stamp the form and have it legally binding.

Many parties who are at the initial stages do not realise the heartache and countless of thousands that may be lost if the issue/s continue to a final hearing.

The parties that achieve this position should be commended, and if the proposition is reasonable, there is no reason why the court will not stamp the form and have it legally binding. - that's it though, "if the proposition is reasonable". Most non-standard agreements do not look "reasonable" on paper but both parties are at pains to tell you they are ok with it. Why can't we just let them move on without having to baby them along telling them they are being unreasonable if they are happy? It is the majistrates that decide for the people when it should be the other way around.

That's the beauty of non-standard agreements. I help broker a deal that everyone is happy with but that doesn't mean financially equal - just everyone is happy.

This female lawyer on steroids from Scotland is on a personal campaign to punish men. She reckons that all financial agreements should be done formally and include maintenance for the poor wife who ran out on her hubby.
donga,

You have a valid point!

Have you any examples of what was un reasonable to the courts?

It was a 60/40 split in my case, 60 going to my ex, the FORM 11 was put together by our solicitor we both signed and it was stamped by the registrar.
This to me seemed reasonable at the time, now, not so, as my child resides with me.
