Consent Orders/Binding Financial Agreements
If parties reach an agreement on parenting and financial matters and they wish to formalise them, they should apply to the Family Court of Australia for consent orders. Parties will benefit from the certainty and enforceability of consent orders, which can regulate their time with their children and ensure that there is no recourse by either party to alter the terms of financial matters that have been resolved and settled.
Consent orders are ideal to achieve many objectives between the parties, however pre-separation binding financial agreements can also be suitable.
Our solicitors can assist you in deciding whether consent orders or a binding financial agreement is best suited to yours and your former partner’s needs.
