mediation turn into
Family Court Orders? How much does it cost?
You file them as consent orders.
Fees here: Court Fees (Family Law) - Family Court of Australia
i understand that, but do you just submit the signed agreement with the do-it-youreslf application or does a lawyer do it?
You can do it yourself if neither party is represented, you just need a signature from both parties.
so a signature on the consent orders draft by both? and just attach the parenting agreement from the mediation.
she has a lawyer who says mediation has to be made into consent orders...
Sorry, just to clarify, are there already proceedings under way in court for this matter?
There was (initial app)...but her lawyer contacted me and wanted to settle out of court.
wanted mediation, and made into consent orders.
i have mediation in 4 weeks but I'm confused with making them consent orders.
Okay, her lawyer should file everything for you. When there's a case pending, they will forward the agreement to the judge's associate and the judge will have a hearing in chambers to decide if they're in the best interests of the child.
After mediation, if you agree with whatever comes out of it, you will have to sign the agreement and they will do the rest. Just make sure you agree with everything, that's all.
