WHAT IS A CONSENT ORDER AND WHY DO YOU NEED ONE?
If you and your former partner have reached an agreement about:
- the arrangements for your children; or
- about how you intend to divide your finances and property
you should consider documenting that agreement in a legally enforceable way.
WHAT ARE CONSENT ORDERS?
One of the quickest and cheapest ways to formalise a family law dispute is to obtain a Consent Order.
To obtain a Consent Order, both parties jointly submit to the Family Court of Australia their agreement about their proposed parenting arrangement or proposed division of property.
The Family Court will only issue a Consent Order if it believes the proposed parenting arrangement is in the best interests of the child and/or if the proposed property orders are just and equitable.
Once approved by the Family Court, the agreement will be issued as an Order. A Court Order is legally enforceable. An Order will provide both parties with certainty as to the terms of the agreement and peace of mind that those terms can not be changed on a whim.
You can avoid long drawn out and costly contentious court proceedings and obtain a Court Order for your parenting or property matters by reaching agreement with your former partner and completing a Consent Order Application.
DO YOU REALLY NEED A CONSENT ORDER?
Yes. Formalising your agreement in a Consent Order ensures your agreement is legally enforceable. If you do not obtain a Consent Order there is a risk the other party may change their mind and you risk being involved in a further dispute down the track.
DO YOU HAVE TO GO TO COURT FOR CONSENT ORDERS?
No. Consent Orders are joint applications made to the Family Court of Australia. They are reviewed by a Registrar of the Court in chambers and neither party is required to attend at Court.
HOW MUCH DO CONSENT ORDERS COST?
We draft Consent Orders all the time and offer fixed professional fees for Consent Order Applications.
We offer different fixed fee packages depending on whether you need a Consent Order for parenting only or property only or if you need a Consent Order for both parenting and property matters.
In addition to our fixed professional fee you will also need to pay the Family Court Filing Fee of $160.
