Consent orders are generally considered a « clear break » between an outgoing couple, meaning that neither person will be able to assert a future financial right against the other. But sometimes circumstances change and it may be necessary to amend this agreement. It is important to know when you can change an approval system and how to proceed. Not all cases that tick any of the four reasons (above) will be successful. Indeed, if you are challenging an approval decision, you must also convince the court that the new information/events you rely on would have made a significant difference had it been known prior to the waterproofing of the approval order. Therefore, if the benefit is simply too small to make a difference, the court would reject your application to quash the approval order. The new information must therefore be important enough to have really made a difference if the court had known in advance!

Approval orders and judgments are used by the parties for registration: without a consent warrant, there is no limit to the length of the divorce. Even if you and your partner reach an agreement between you, it will not have the same effect as a legally binding financial decision of the court. It is important that you and your spouse be completely honest about the financial assets you hold, as non-disclosure of your finances could invalidate the consent order and induce the court to enforce the agreement. You can request an authorization order at any time after the granting of the nisi decree.
It may be a good idea to get the order of approval before the divorce is concluded with the absolute decree. Real estate orders require consideration of Section 79 of the Family Act, including the assets and liabilities of the parties and the financial and non-financial contributions made by each party. They must also take into account the parties` current financial situation and future needs. The purpose of the Family Act is to ensure that the parties meet their financial obligations and receive an asset allocation reflecting their own claims. While the court did not consider the man`s behaviour in this case to be sufficient to build coercion, the court said it could be considered marginal or even unacceptable. The court found that the percentage distribution of property to the wife under the consent orders was manifestly insufficient.
