    Default How to update Consent orders?

    Hi I wasnt sure where to put this but i need some direction.

    Father of 7yr old and I have court orders that are about 2 yrs old now.
    SHOCK HORROR we have actually agreed to something that needs to be changed, and Im trying to find out how we can lodge paper work through the courts for new consent forms (will only be 1 area of visitation that will be changed).

    Is there a particular form we need? Do we have to send in a copy of the old orders, and do either of us need to actually be present in court?

    Thanks for any info

    Don't quote me on this but I *think* you maybe need to go through the mediation again... I recently have been trying to get consent orders done and I asked that question, as far as I recall lawyer said we would need to do mediation again and go from there. I might be wrong though.

    If you are both agreeable i think you can get a solicitor to type up the new orders/agreement and get x to have another solicitor review them then you just both sign & have them submitted to the court

    I saw a community legal centre solicitor the other day and he said because the orders (in regards to visitation with the father) start with "for periods agreed apon between parents, or failing agreement:'
    So basically if we agree, thats fine, so he suggested we write up an amendment and just have it JP witnessed, and if anything goes wrong we revert back to orders (which is not in the fathers best intrests).
