Reaching an amicable decision with your former partner or spouse is always preferable to litigation. Stacks can assist you to draft consent agreements in relation to property division and the care of children.
If both parties can agree on how to divide your assets, you can ask the Federal Circuit Court of Australia to make Orders by Consent. This does not require either of you to attend Court but merely to submit your agreement to the Court for the Court's approval.
The Family Court or Federal Circuit Court of Australia are obliged to take into account a number of matters to determine whether the proposed Consent Orders are 'just and equitable'. It is not simply a 'rubber stamping' exercise. They must review all of your financial details in light of your agreement, to decide if the division is just and equitable, and in the best interests of the child.
Stacks Law Firm can draft and negotiate consent orders with a view to reaching an amicable decision between you and your former partner or spouse. We can also assist you to make changes to any existing Family Court orders. Our aim is to help you through all aspects of family law, with the utmost respect, confidentiality, sensitivity, compassion and professionalism towards your personal and private matters - with litigation as a last resort.
