Consent Orders2018-11-29T12:50:18+00:00



If you are able to reach agreement with the other party about your parenting arrangements or the division of your property following separation, you can formalise the agreement by way of Consent Orders.

The Consent Orders are filed at the Family Court and once approved by a Registrar of the Court, they are made into Orders. There is no requirement to attend Court and you achieve the certainty and protection of binding Orders in a cost effective manner.

Consent Orders can cover:

  • your parenting arrangements including who the children live with and what the time they spend with the other parent during school term and school holidays and the time the children spend with their parents on special occasions including Christmas, Easter, their birthdays and other cultural or religious days of significance;
  • how your property will be divided, and what each of you will retain including real estate, monies in joint bank accounts, motor vehicles, shares, and superannuation.

Consent Orders need to follow legal procedure, so expert and understanding advice will be important in reaching an agreement that is fair to both parties and adequately reflects their intentions.

Resolving your matter by consent will reduce the stress involved in separation and will finalise your matter quickly, allowing you to move on with your life and focus on co-parenting your children. Consent Orders are a practical, inexpensive solution to formalising the parenting arrangements for your children and finalising your property settlement.

I just wanted to thank and praise Tash for her work on my family law matter. Not an easy task given the complexities of my situation and various assets that came into the equation. Tash is very resourceful and was efficiently able to find the answers, legal precedents and advice I needed. Above all she is tenacious and thorough, and I was very happy to have her in my corner.

Tash made buying our first home as calm and comfortable as we could have imagined. Tash walked us through the process step by step and ensured that we understood everything, making settlement a breeze.
