    Consent orders state a dollar amount to be processed from one party to the other as part of settlement. This has yet to be completed and lawyers have already been let go so-to-speak, before I realised the super split hadn't occurred. Is here a time limit in which to do so? How do we start this process?
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Contact the super fund. They’ll have a process and the requisite forms.

    Thanks - what if the super fund is not listed anywhere and the owner of fund won't pass on details?

    Super funds generally fall into two types:
    - Funds regulated by APRA (most superannuation funds)
    - Self managed superannuation funds regulated by the ATO

    Given you're aware of the superannuation, I'm supposing it will have been identified and quantified somewhere in the documents.

    If the other party isn't complying with the terms of the orders, I suggest you:
    (a) Contact the party and draw their attention to the terms of the consent orders, and seek their compliance.
    (b) If that doesn't work, go back to the lawyers and have them seek formal intervention by the courts.
