Consent Orders without litigation
Consent orders give the certainty that a parenting plan offers, however they are enforceable by the Court. They and can include children, property and superannuation.
Consent orders can be made without initiating Family Court proceedings, and are made by agreement by the parties in one document that are then filed in the Court.
Aspire Family Law can draft your consent orders jointly, however one party will need to obtain independent legal advice.
When making consent orders both parties are required to make full and frank disclosure of finances and circumstances.
All consent orders must be drafted so they are just and equitable before they will be endorsed by the court.
Consent orders create certainty and are more time and cost effective for parties rather than Family Court litigation. If Family Court proceedings have already commenced, parties can settle matters through the use of consent orders at any stage.
