Applying for Consent Orders
Once you have reached an agreement, you can send this agreement to the Court. You will need to send;
1. An Application for Consent Orders requesting that the Orders be made;
2. A Minute of Consent Orders, setting out the terms of the agreement; and,
3. A filing fee.
The agreement is then assessed and approved by a Registrar, at which time the Orders become binding and enforceable. In assessing the agreement, the Court will consider whether it is just and equitable for all parties.
Enforcing Consent Orders
Once registered with the Court, consent orders are binding and enforceable. If you or any other party breaches the Orders, it can result in contravention or contempt proceedings. If needed, you can apply to vary or terminate the Orders.
