Once both parties have agreed on the orders they seek and signed the application for consent orders, the application is filed at the Family Court.
After filing, the Court will set a hearing date. You do not need to attend the Court for this hearing. Your application will be reviewed and determined by a judicial officer (generally a Registrar) of the Court.
If the Court is satisfied with the application, it will make the orders and send a copy to each party (or their lawyers).
If the Court is not satisfied with the orders sought, the parties (or their lawyers if represented) generally receive a letter from the Court setting out its further requirements. In this situation it is often necessary for the parties to provide the Court with further evidence in support of their application.
