What are Consent Orders in Family Law?

Consent Orders are a legally binding document that formalizes your property settlement and future arrangements for your children when separating. It is important to note that both parties must agree to the terms outlined in the document.

At our Gold Coast and Brisbane law firms, our experienced family lawyers can help you reach an agreement with your former spouse.

Once an agreement is reached, both parties will sign the document and it will be sent to the Family Court of Australia for review and approval. The approval by the Family Court of Australia makes the document more binding and provides protection for you in the future.

One of the best parts of Consent Orders is that you and your former spouse won’t need to attend court, saving you time, stress and money.

Contact us today to learn more about how we can help with your Consent Orders.

Looking for information on divorce applications?

If you’re seeking an official divorce order that allows you or your former spouse to re-marry, you’ll need to complete a Divorce Application. This process involves applying to the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, and doesn’t cover parenting arrangements or property settlements, which require different processes such as Consent Orders or a Binding Financial Agreement.

A tip for a smoother process: if both you and your former spouse can agree to sign the Divorce Application together, you’ll avoid the extra steps of serving the Application on the other party or attending court.

What is a Binding Financial Agreement (BFA) or Prenup?

A Binding Financial Agreement (BFA), also known as a Prenup or Separation Agreement, is an alternative way for separating couples to formalize their property settlement matters. With a BFA, you and your partner can have clarity on how assets accumulated during the relationship will be divided in case of separation. BFAs are suitable for parties who are entering into, during or after a de facto relationship, before or during a marriage, or following the breakdown of a marriage. Unlike Consent Orders, a BFA is not subject to the scrutiny of the Family Court, making it a much more customizable and unique option while providing adequate protection.

Our experienced family lawyers can guide you through the BFA process and tailor an agreement to suit your unique situation.
