Avoid court with a consent order
Should you have reached an agreement to finalise your property settlement and or spousal maintenance matters, we are able to provide advice to you as to the most appropriate manner in which to formalise the agreement, dependent upon your circumstances.
Once determined whether a Consent Order best protects your interests, we are able to prepare the documentation on your behalf. In the alternative, should your former spouse’s lawyer have already prepared such documentation, we are able to assist in providing advice in relation to the meaning and effect of the document and of any changes that may be required.
Fortunately, there are several avenues couples can take before ending up at the mercy of a Trial and Judge. We layout the various stages on our page Dispute Resolution.
Ideally, couples come to an agreement before getting to Court and that is where a consent order is needed. You do not need to go to Court to make a consent order, but they do have the same legal effect as if they had been made at a Court hearing.
