Application for Financial Consent Orders

To make your financial separation agreement official in financial consent orders, there are two documents that need to be prepared—Application for Consent Orders and Proposed Orders by Consent.

 

The process

Once the documents have been prepared, you and your partner are happy with the documents, you sign the paperwork, get legal advice (optional) and then submit the paperwork to the court to be approved. If the agreement is determined to be fair (“just and equitable”) according to what the law says, then your agreement will be stamped and approved by the court. You’ll both receive a copy of the stamped orders in the mail.

You then simply need to implement the agreement.

See, it’s really not that complex! 

Our solution

By using automated software, we make it easy for you to prepare your own draft agreement paperwork using our templates prepared by an experienced family lawyer.

You simply answer questions about your agreement, make payment, press submit and you’ll immediately receive your draft paperwork via email.

From there, it’s up to you to carefully read the draft paperwork and take steps to make it official.
