Consent Orders in family law property settlements

Parties are often able to come to an agreement about a property settlement without Court involvement. If you and your partner reach an agreement you can apply to the Court for Consent Orders which is a relatively simple and inexpensive process.

Ensuring the Consent Orders are valid and binding

Full and frank disclosure must be demonstrated when identifying and declaring assets. Otherwise, your Consent Orders may be subject to a review and the Court has the option of favouring the other party due to dishonesty on the part of the non-disclosing party.

Legal representation is essential to ensuring full and proper consideration is given to all matters. When Consent Orders are sought, there should be enough information before the court to enable the court to make its own enquiry as to the justice and equity of the Consent Orders.
