Not sure what to choose?

What are consent orders?

If you and your ex have reached agreement about financial/property and/or parenting arrangements and want to formalise the agreement to make it binding, you should apply for Family Court Consent Orders (“consent orders”).

Once made, consent orders have the same legal effect of any orders made by a Judge following a court hearing. Even though consent orders are submitted to the Court, the process is administrative and you are not required to appear at Court.

Consent orders can be filed any time after separation but should to be filed within 12 months of a divorce or within two years of the end of a de facto relationship if parties wish to seek orders from the court. If you are filing beyond this time frame, you should contact us.

Why should you make your agreement official?

There are plenty of reasons to document your agreement even if you and your ex are amicable. Here are some good ones:

1. You can save a significant amount of money

If you’re transferring property under Family Court Consent Orders (“consent orders”) you will be able to save thousands in stamp duty. Family law transfers are considered exempt transfers in most states and territories. Having consent orders in place also means that you can resolve your dispute without incurring the costs of lengthy court proceedings.

2. For peace of mind

Consent orders provides a well-documented, binding and enforceable record of your agreement. Both parties can rest assured knowing that they will be legally protected.

3. For certainty

The court considers consent orders to be your full and final agreement. Reaching an agreement and choosing to keep the arrangement informal, on the other hand, will not be considered full and final and your former partner may be tempted to come back for “another bite of the cherry” and any assets you have accumulated in the intervening period could potentially form part of the assets available for division.

When you pay for a Forward>> solution, we will hold the money in trust until your matter is finalised and then send you an invoice. This invoice will include the costs of any disbursements (i.e. additional title searches or valuation fees)

I love to travel and have already made it to 18 countries across Europe and Asia. My personal goal is to travel to every continent, including Antarctica. My favourite destination so far is Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, where I skydived over the Swiss Alps!

Outside of the law and travel, I am a qualified lifeguard and swimming instructor, and have taught kids from as young as six months to adults.

I am a passionate environmentalist and animal lover. I advocate for kinder lawyering and living through my volunteer work at local sanctuaries and community organisations. I am an unashamed dance mum extraordinaire to my two lively daughters and wife to my ever so supportive and husband. I adore cats, and have 3 – Ruby, Cleo and Kimba, who are very popular on Instagram! You can check them out here.
