ANCILLARY RELIEF: G v G (Consent Order: Lump Sum: Payment by Instalments) [2006] EWHC 1993 (Fam)
Date:14 AUG 2006

(Family Division; Baron J; 19 June 2006)

Following the Financial Dispute Resolution (FDR) appointment, the FDR judge did not have jurisdiction to have any further involvement in the application for ancillary relief, but once the ancillary relief application had been dealt with by consent, there was no rationale for preventing the FDR judge from dealing with further or new applications that came into being. Having made a consent order, the FDR judge had jurisdiction to deal with consequential directions in relation to that order and/or to vary the terms of that order.
