5. Court approval
It usually takes two to four weeks for court orders to be made in accordance with the agreement you’ve reached. You aren’t required to attend court. The case is considered by a Judge in Chambers.
Once the orders have been made, a sealed copy of the Orders typically becomes available via the court portal. We will obtain a sealed copy of the Orders and forward them to you.
The process of taking instructions from you, putting together the draft documents, having them filed and then having orders made in accordance with the agreement reached usually takes around one month.
Sometimes there can be other matters to settle. Commonly, one party transfers their interest in a property to the other and there’s a refinance process that must take place. We’re able to assist with the implementation of orders and arrange the refinance on your behalf for an additional fixed fee. This process generally takes around six weeks.
