Note: The Application for the Consent Orders can be electronically filed using an interactive online form through the Commonwealth Courts Portal. There is no need to complete this form if you wish to eFile. Visit the How do I apply for Consent Orders page for more information.

If you have reached agreement and you want to formalise that agreement and make it binding, you can apply to the Court for Consent Orders. You use this form to obtain consent orders about:

  • the care, welfare and development of your children (known as parenting orders);
  • the division of property or maintenance for a spouse/de facto spouse or former spouse/de facto spouse (known as spouse maintenance).

The form can also be used if you are applying for consent orders which vary or discharge existing Family Court orders.

Consent orders have the same legal effect as an order made after a Court hearing.

You may also like to use the Application for Consent Orders - proposed orders template  (This template contains the proforma for your proposed consent orders).

NOTE: If the applicant or respondent has certified at Item 25 that there has been or is a risk of child abuse, neglect or family violence, a Notice of Child Abuse, Family Violence or Risk of Family Violence
(Application for Consent Orders) must be filed with the Application for Consent Orders.
