Stubbs law firm helped me through a very difficult time with divorce and cancer . Rachael was very kind and was available at any time that I need to chat about property and family law . Brendan was most accommodating and always made time for me . He actually fitted me in , between clients and was a great support . I was a little lost with the break up of the relationship and need help and Stubbs Lawyers were there for me . I think I remember even calling at 8pm one evening for advice and nothing was a problem for them to help me . I would highly recommend this firm.

Consent Orders – Your Questions Answered

What are Consent Orders?

When two people separate, they often want to formalise an 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.

Consent Orders are an ideal way to finalise your financial ties with your ex-partner and allow you to move forward independently and with certainty.

Do I have to attend Court?

If there are no children under the age of 18, you don’t have to attend court for the Divorce hearing.  Also, if you’re making the application jointly with your former spouse, you don’t have to attend court either.


Why would we formalise our agreement?

Formalising your agreement with a Consent Order means neither person can change their mind independently later on. For parenting matters, it gives you certainty that you get to spend the time with your children that the orders say you will. Those orders can be enforced by the Court if someone doesn’t follow them. For property settlements, the orders finalise and sever the financial relationship between parties. That means you can get on with your life, knowing that what you earn and accumulate after the settlement is indisputably yours.
