Consent Orders in Perth

If you have been looking for a trusted Family Law attorney for Consent Orders in Perth, then you’re in need for legal advice or assistance.

A Consent Order in a Perth Family Court can be a Court Order once formalised, and offers the same weight as if a hearing has been concluded by a judicial officer. Family Law Orders can be in the form of a decree, decision, declaration, or judgment—all these, once made formal, require compliance from all parties.

Hoe Lawyers is here to provide you with the comprehensive, clear and concise legal advice, alongside responsive and apt legal action that is centred on your best interests.



Seeking out Consent Orders from a Family Court in Perth serves as an actionable item for parties in resolving a variety of matters.

In Perth, Consent Orders, once approved, work similarly to Court Orders in terms of status. These can include any of the following:

  • Orders made upon the conclusion of a judicial officer in a hearing.
  • Orders made and agreed upon by all involved parties who have applied to a court in Perth for Consent Orders.

Consent Orders in Perth are primarily reserved for Parenting and Property or Financial Matters. However, when absolutely necessary and all other options for resolving matters or issues have been exhausted, you can apply to the court for orders to arrive at a resolution.

Figuratively speaking, a Court Order serves as the trump card when push comes to shove. Going through a dispute resolution in your community can help, but if that too fails to bear fruit, seeking legal advice is an option. Depending on the issue at hand, whether it is on parenting arrangements or property or financial matters, the application for either a Consent Order or a Court Order can have different requirements. With Hoe Lawyers, we can assist you throughout the entire ordeal. Call us today so we can assess your options.
