    What is a "minute of order"? I am now self represented in my family law matter and need to lodge one regarding an application to change the parenting orders that had previously been finalised.

    What form do I use?

    A minute of orders sought is basically a document containing each of the orders you're seeking.

    There is no specific form for this, but a good example of how they should be written can be viewed on pages 2 and 4 of this document.

    Page 2 is an example of a cover page. Page 4 is an example of the draft minutes of orders sought.

    The example above is for consent orders, so instead of "Minutes of Consent Orders" as it appears on page 4, you would write "Minutes of Final Orders Sought".

    Does this help? I'm not sure if I've been clear enough, but let me know and I'll try and clarify if needed.
