Family Court of Australia – Updates to Consent Orders Application and Related Forms

Updates to Consent Orders application and related forms

Due to a change in terminology from ‘draft’ consent orders to ‘proposed’ consent orders, the following forms have been updated to reflect the change.

Application for Consent Orders Kit (and form)

The kit has been updated with the new terminology throughout the instructional pages (A – I) and the checklist. Within the form itself, the terminology change has been made in Parts E, F, J, K, L. M, N and O.
The new version numbers for the kit and form are 070612_V3 and these are now available on the website. The printed stock of version 070612_V2 will continue to be used and does not need to be pulped.

Annexure to Proposed Consent Parenting Order

The Annexure to Draft Consent Parenting Order has had a title change to Annexure to Proposed Consent Parenting Order. The new version number is 070612_V3 and is now available on the website. This is not a printed item.

Application for Consent Orders – proposed orders template

The Consent Orders Supplement has been redeveloped to become the Application for Consent Orders – proposed orders template which is now a fillable proforma rather than a guide only. This template includes:

  • Cover sheet for the Consent Orders
  • First page for the Consent Orders
  • Format of Consent Orders (to follow first page of orders)
  • Certification of Consent Orders

The templates version number is 0516_V1 and it is now available on the website. This is not a printed item.
