What are Consent Orders?
When two people separate, they often want to formalise an amicable agreement they’ve reached around how to divide their financial assets or care arrangements for their children.
This is what a Consent Order lets them do. Or, in more legal terms: a Consent Order is made when two parties submit their proposed agreement to the Family Court of Australia or the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, and the agreement is sealed by the Court and made into a legally binding document.
Any agreement that becomes a Consent Order has the same legal effect as if the judge made the Order after a contested hearing. However, the big difference is that you don’t have to go through the expense and stress of the entire court process. In fact, you don’t even need to go to Court at all.
