Do you need Help Preparing Consent Orders?
Consent Orders are a common way for parties to formalise an agreement in property settlement, children's matters and spousal maintenance matters. Consent Orders must be clear, concise and properly set out the agreement to ensure compliance and avoid unnecessary Contravention Applications.
The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia seal the completed Consent Order upon Application to the Court provided that the Agreement is Just and Equitable and otherwise is enforceable.

This knowledge helps you rest assured that your Consent Orders will be prepared to a high standard.
