What Are Consent Orders and How to File for a Consent Order in Sydney?

A consent order is an agreement that you draft, negotiate, and agree to alongside your ex-partner with the help of your legal representative. Consent orders can cover the division of property you own together, as well as addressing ongoing financial commitments. Property includes not just the family house, but other real estate, as well as shares, cars, cash, jewellery, superannuation, business interests, and more.

To file a consent order in Sydney, both parties must:

  • Draft, negotiate, and finalise Consent Order(s)
  • Complete and Sign the Application for Consent Orders Form
  • Sign affidavits
  • File the application with the Family Court of Australia (either online or at the Registry) and pay the filing fee

Following this, the Registrar will review the application. Once they are satisfied that it is fair, the Consent Order will become a Court Order that is legally binding and enforceable. Signed and sealed copies of the Orders will be sent to you. Consent Orders that are not accepted by the court will be sent to you with details explaining what you need to do next.

If property settlement matters can’t be agreed to by all parties (including the court) via a consent order, you may be required to attend a court hearing.
