Common Questions 

 

Consent Orders are agreements made between separated or divorced couples that have been formalised by the Family Law Courts. You must first come to an agreement with your former spouse or partner about property and/or the arrangements for the care of any minor children of the relationship. This can be done through negotiation between the parties or by more formal means, such as Mediation.

The Family Courts can formalise arrangements between couples about:

Parenting/children's issues: such as who the child(ren) is to live with or which parent will financially/emotionally support the child.

Property settlement: including division or transfer of real estate, motor vehicles, superannuation or other items of value.

Spousal maintenance: an agreement can be made to pay a lump sum or ongoing payments to one spouse.

Consent Orders are a good option because couples can apply for the Consent Orders themselves without actually having to go to Court or obtaining legal representation. Because the agreement is formalised by the Courts, you can be assured that the Consent Order is final and binding. This is because the circumstances in which either party may apply to set aside the Consent Order or change any provisions within the Consent Order are limited.

There may be some restrictions on whether you are able to apply for Consent Orders. For example, de facto couples are unable to apply for property settlement orders unless there are minor children of the de facto relationship and the agreement relates to those children. There may also be time limits that apply. For example, if you are divorced from your spouse, an application for Consent orders must be made within 1 year of a divorce becoming final.

Consent Orders and a Binding Financial Agreement (BFA) are different documents, though they may contain similar subject matter. Both contain agreements in relation to a former relationship about matters such as the division of property or ongoing care and maintenance of minor children. In some circumstances, both options may be available. With a BFA, both you and your former or future partner must obtain indpendent legal advice. There is no similar requirement for Consent Orders for it to be legally binding.

Yes, you can include orders about spousal maintenance. The court will allow spousal maintenance if it's 'just and equitable.'

You must 'file' (submit) the application for Consent Orders in the Family Court or Federal Magistrate's Court. You should file in the Court registry closest to you.
