How We Can Help You With Your Consent Orders

As your go-to family lawyers, we will prepare consent orders for you in the form of draft orders for the court. Usually the process is as follows:

We will meet with you to better understand your circumstances

Based on your family’s specific needs, we will advise you on the specific types of orders that you can and must think about.

We will take your instructions

We will draft the orders and provide them to you for your review

We will meet with you, or work with you via email, Zoom or Skype to amend the orders until you are happy with them

We will meet with you, or work with you via email, Zoom or Skype to amend the orders until you are happy with them

We will send the draft orders to your former partner or your former partner’s legal representative

Once you and your former partner have agreed the details of the orders, we will complete the necessary Court Application and file, along with your draft orders.

If the registrar of the court is satisfied that the terms of the orders are just and equitable in all of the circumstances, the registrar will issue sealed orders on the terms of the draft orders

How Much Do Consent Orders Cost?

As well as the costs of taking your instructions, drafting and amending your Orders to submit before the Court, there is a Court filing fee which is currently $170.00.

If you have a clear idea of what you are seeking and you and your former partner are largely in agreement, then the cost of settling your draft orders will be significantly less than if you are unsure of what you want and it is difficult for you and your former partner to see eye to eye.

It stands to reason that if you and your former partner can agree, your orders can be put before a registrar and your orders are proper, just and equitable, then you are likely to spend less on legal fees than if your matter is complex.

At Anumis Legal, we are happy to advise you and work with you to achieve an efficient outcome. Sometimes it takes a little longer for agreement to be reached. Consent orders ensure that your former partner is held to account.

You deserve solid experience, knowledge, and the very best legal backing to ensure you achieve your goals.

Do You Need Legal Advice About How To Obtain Consent Orders? 

If you and your former partner have come to an agreement, then the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia provides a kit for the preparation of consent orders. However, we strongly advise you to seek legal advice before you sign any agreement or contract, so that you can be sure that the consequences of your agreement are the outcomes that you intend.

What Parenting Arrangements Should You Consider When Preparing Your Consent Orders?

You deserve solid experience, knowledge, and the very best legal backing to ensure you achieve your goals.

Does the child/ children live with you or your former partner?

What time does the child/ children spend with the parent that they do not live with?

What time does the child/ children spend with other people who are important to the children, such as their grandparents?

How does contact take place with important people in the child/ children’s life, such as for example, by phone, FaceTime, Skype, email or letters?

If your child/ children are not covered by the Child Support (Assessment) Act what are the provisions for child maintenance?

Are there any special and specific travel arrangements or conditions?

How might changeovers occur?

Are there any specific agreements that cover day-to-day care of the child/ children, their education, welfare, religion and their involvement in sport?

Are there any other factors that have to do with parental responsibility that you want to cover?

How will disputes between you and your former partner be resolved in the future?

What Happens If My Ex-Partner Does Not Stick To The Consent Orders?

Contravention of an Order is serious. You will find the penalties for Contravention of a Parenting Order in Division 13A of Part VII of the Family Law Act 1975.

Consent Orders must be complied with. Your former partner will be in contravention of the orders if they intentionally fail to comply with the orders or if they make no reasonable attempt to comply with the orders.

If the Court finds that your former partner has failed to follow the Orders without a reasonable excuse, it may do any of the following: impose a penalty, order your former partner to attend a post separation parenting program, require your former partner to enter into a bond, order your former partner to pay all or some of your legal costs, order your former partner to pay a fine, require your former partner to participate in community service, order your former partner to pay compensation for reasonable expenses lost as a result of their breach, vary the primary order, order your former partner to a sentence of imprisonment.

Do You Also Need Assistance Drafting Your Financial Consent Orders?

When you separate, it is important to come to an agreement with your ex-partner about how your property and financial assets will be divided between you, considering any liabilities, superannuation, loans and your circumstances. Financial Consent Orders will give you certainty and finality in terms of the financial and property aspects of your relationship.

To ensure that your agreement is enforceable and legally binding (as long as there are no Court proceedings on foot) you can formalise your financial agreement by applying for consent orders. The court will consider whether the Financial Orders you are seeking are just and equitable. If you’d like to learn more, check out our page about financial orders of consent today!
