Course Overview

Setting aside a consent order, whatever the grounds, is easier said than done.

The court’s preoccupation with finality often means that, even when it is apparent there has been non-disclosure or a change in circumstances, a consent order will not automatically be set aside.

The logic behind this is understandable; there would be no finality if it were easy for parties to re-open and change consent orders once made. Similarly, the court are reluctant to made decisions which could be seized upon others and result in a floodgate of litigation.

During this session the developments surrounding the distribution of family assets, and setting aside consent orders on account of material non-disclosure, will be considered through the examination of the following case law:  

  • Roocroft v. Ball (PR of Carol Ainscow, Deceased) [2016]
  • AB v CD 2016
  • Hart v. Hart [2018]
  • VS v RE [2018]
  • Al – Baker v. Al- Baker [2015]
  • Veluppillai v. Veluppillai and Others [2015]
  • Sharland v. Sharland [2015]
  • Gohil v. Gohil [2015]
  • Iqbal v. Iqbal [2017]
  • Critchell v. Critchell [2015]

Experienced family law lecturer Safda Mahmood will consider the circumstances in which setting aside consent orders because of non-disclosure may arise and will examine the consequences of such behaviour, including costs.

In addition, the likelihood of a consent order being set aside following a change in one or both parties’ situation will also be explored.
