“Consent Orders may be made by a court where there is agreement by parties for orders to be made. There are usually certain requirements that need to be met before a court will issue consent orders.”
A consent order or “consent orders” may have different meanings depending on the jurisdiction and the Court and type of proceedings.
Consent orders in family law matters in Australia can be made where parties agree on terms of settlement and agree for the Court to make those into orders. The Court is not bound to make orders simply because the parties agree, and they still have legislative requirements that that they must consider before making orders. However, it is often the case that most terms of settlement made by the parties are made in some form or another into consent orders by the court.

There are a range of different consent orders that can be made. They may be parenting consent orders, they may be property consent orders, they could be procedural consent orders, and they could be ordering binding the parties or even third parties in certain cases.
There are different ways that consent orders can be presented to the Court and it may depend on whether the agreement being proposed to be made into orders already has proceedings on foot or whether the parties are seeking these orders be made when there are no proceedings on foot.
Consent orders can be made on an interim basis and they can also be made on a final basis, depending on your situation.
If you think that you can reach agreement with the other party or parties in your matter, you may wish to consider having the agreement made into consent orders.
