Common Questions 

 

Consent Orders are agreements made between separated or divorced couples that have been formalised by the Family or Federal Magistrate's Court. Consent orders can be used to make agreements about the care of children, for the division of property or for ongoing maintenance for a husband or wife. Consent Orders have the same legal effect as an order made after a Court hearing.

Consent Orders are final and once made, it's very difficult to overturn or vary the orders. The Court encourages families to reach an agreement about issues relating to property and minor children after a family breakdown. The Court recommends that separated or divorced couples read the brochure 'Marriage, Separation and Divorce' before applying for divorce and when seeking Consent Orders through the Courts.

The Family Courts can formalise arrangements between couples about parenting and 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 and spousal maintenance, such as 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.

The Consent Orders Online Application form prepares all the documents and forms that you need to apply for Consent Orders, including the completed application form and Draft Consent Orders (the signed agreement which you wish to have made into court orders.) You can use the Consent Orders Online Application to obtain an order when you have reached agreement about property (the Court must consider that the agreement is 'just and equitable') and spousal maintenance for a husband or wife. You cannot use the Consent Orders Online Application to make orders about children's issues or to split or transfer superannuation. There may be requirements that need to be met before applying for consent orders, our online Consent orders form will step you through some of these requirements.

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. A party to a marriage is liable to maintain the other party, to the extent that the first-mentioned party is reasonably able to do so, if, and only if, that other party is unable to support herself or himself adequately.

What information do I need to complete the form? . . .

Before you start completing the form online, you may wish to collect some important information first. Because it's important that all assets are declared, you may find it useful to download and print a List of Required Information for Consent Orders.

What happens when I submit the online form? . . .

Once you have received your documents, it will then be necessary for you to sign the papers, submit the papers to the Court and pay the Court filing fee (the fee is $160 as at 1 July 2016). Your kit comes with an information guide written in plain language and step-by-instructions.

Do I need to see a Lawyer? . . .

The Consent Orders Online Application is designed for straight-forward situations, where separated or divorced couples want to transfer or sell their matrimonial home and make other financial agreements between them legally binding, without incurring the significant costs of obtaining formal legal representation. There is no specific requirement to seek formal legal advice, however, it is important that you understand the terms of the orders you are seeking. If you do not understand the terms then it's recommended that you seek formal legal advice. The Consent Orders Online Application is not a substitute for and should not be relied upon as legal advice.
