Five questions I always get asked about Consent Orders

Can you work with both parties?

Yes, we can but only under strict conditions.

How long does the process take?

Once we have your intake forms, we will generally have your first draft ready in 24hrs – We will advise you what day your matter is being drafted and would like you to be available if we have any questions. We will start your matter in the morning and provide your draft in the evening.

Once you have your first draft, any changes will be made with 24hrs.

When you are ready to sign your documents, we will provide you with an electronic signature solution with access codes via your mobile. Once both parties have signed, we will submit your application for Consent Orders and “minute of order” to the family court under our court portal.

The court may take up to 6 weeks to approve your Consent Orders. From our experience, it is a function of the time of the year. Generally speaking, toward Christmas and the end of the school terms, they take longer and the beginning of new school terms also takes a bit longer.

Can the Family Court change our Consent Orders?

No, when you present your application for consent orders and the proposed agreement, you ask the Family Court to either accept the proposed Consent Orders or not. They will not make a decision to change your agreement without your consent.

What is “just and equitable” in Consent Orders?

“Just and equitable” involves the concept of fairness in the agreement between the parties.

This is a very complex question, and it involves lots of variables. These may include.

While we do not provide legal advice to parties, we have made a decision that we will only work with parties that have come to an agreement that we believe the Family Court will accept as just and equitable.

From our observation, people working together in good faith come to fantastic agreements. They do this not because they are told what the court expects or a lawyer has told them what to do but because they act out of respect for their former partner.

What documents do you prepare?

In order to submit your Consent Orders to the Family Court, we prepare all the necessary documents. The following are among them:

  1. Application for Consent Orders – Required for all matters
  2. Minute of Order – The written document outlineing your agreement
  3. Notice of risk with only required with patrenting orders.
  4. Letters to superannuation funds requesting splittting approvals
  5. Letters to the court as required
  6. Letters to actuaries for defined benefit superannuation.
  7. Any other correspondence as required by your matter.

Family Lawyers in Sydney you won’t find anywhere else

Kate Austin Family Lawyers are located in the CBD of Sydney. We provide our services throughout Sydney, including the outer suburbs. As we provide a remote legal service, our physical location has no bearing on your ability to access our service.

Sydney Family Lawyers for Consent Orders

Consent Orders are Kate Austin’s primary service. This is where two parties have an agreement, and they wish to formalise that agreement with the family court and make it legally binding. We work with clients who are not located geographically close to each. Because we do not represent either clients we are happy to work with both of you to get your agreement through the family court.

What is a Kate Austin Client?

Kate Austin Family Lawyers would be the best suited law firm for you if you are in the following situation.

Matter that are not suitable.

Our Consultation about Consent Orders is free.

We are happy to have a general discussion in relation to your consent orders, as this is the first step in understanding your agreement. Our discussion will cover the following topics.

Free consultations are not useful unless you have an amicable agreement. We may direct you to a more suitable service if we are not a good fit.

How much do Consent Orders Cost?

There is a significant difference in the cost of family lawyers. A time-based fee is still charged by most law firms, which means that the more time they spend discussing your matter with you, discussing it with the other party’s solicitor, and drafting your agreements, the more they will charge. It is important that you feel confident that the services you are engaging will be drafted and negotiated efficiently. The legal profession has a saying that time costing rewards inefficiency.

Fees at Kate Austin Family Lawyers are fixed. Our fees will remain the same regardless of how long it takes us to complete your matter. As a means of ensuring that clients remain focused on resolving matters in the shortest time possible, we have rules about how many changes clients can make and what timeframes they need to meet. When you begin your case, it is imperative that both parties understand the agreement and are willing to share their financial information as soon as possible.

Please note that unless you have an amicable agreement a free consultation is not something that will advance your matter. If we are not suitable, we will let you know a probably direct you to a more suitable service.

Creating and getting Court approval for a Consent Order in Sydney can involve a lot of hurdles. This is the guidance you’ll get from Kate Austin Family Lawyers when you need a Consent Order drafted and finalised. Regardless of where you live in Sydney, we will prepare your Consent Orders at a fixed fee and guarantee their approval in the Family Court or we will refund your fees.
