Our Process

1. Initial Consultation

Start with a free initial consultation where we discuss your situation in detail. This meeting helps us understand your needs and expectations, allowing us to provide you with independent legal advice on how to draft consent orders and proceed further.

2. Drafting Your Agreement

Based on your instructions and the agreements reached between you and your former partner, our team crafts your proposed consent orders. We ensure that all terms are clear, fair, and legally sound, addressing all aspects of your agreement.

3. Review and Finalisation

Once the draft is prepared, we review it together to ensure it meets your approval and fully represents your interests. Any necessary revisions are made to ensure that the orders reflect the true intent of both parties.

4. Filing with the Court

After your final approval, we file the consent orders with the Family Court. This step includes handling all the administrative aspects and ensuring that the documents are submitted correctly and efficiently.

5. Court Approval and Implementation

The court reviews the submitted consent orders to ensure they are just and equitable. Once approved, the orders become legally binding. We then provide you with the final documentation and guide you through the implementation of the orders.

6. Post-Order Support

Following court approval, we remain available to assist with any further adjustments or enforcement issues that may arise. Our commitment is to support you not just through the legal process but also as you move forward.
