A ‘Minute of Consent’ is what?
Minutes of Consent are essentially documents that contain the Consent Orders you are asking the court to make on your behalf. A minute of consent can include either property settlement Consent Orders or parenting orders, as well as Consent Orders for the payment of spousal maintenance. Consent Orders are issued in accordance with the Minute of Order that has been signed by and submitted on behalf of the parties. The court will consider the Minute of Order if it is in order and all of the provisions are drafted in a way that is legally binding and enforceable.
A Minute of Order can be filed during the course of contested court proceedings if procedural Orders are sought by the parties or if there is a partial or full agreement reached between the parties, whether in relation to their property settlement or the future care arrangements for their child or children.
A Minute of Order is however used in all cases where Consent Orders are being sought by the parties in circumstances where there are no court proceedings on foot and the parties are asking the court to make the Orders without the necessity for either party to actually attend court.
