A Consent Order is a Court Order which has been made when you have been able to agree on arrangements concerning your children (or property settlement). The arrangements agreed to are recorded in writing in a document approved by the Court. Once that document is completed by the parties it is sent to the Court for approval. A Consent Order is enforceable. Usually you do not need to attend Court to have a Consent Order made (unless the Consent Order is made as a result of a proceeding that has already been commenced with the Court).
