A Consent Order is a document drafted to record an agreement between two parties, reached outside of Court. The agreement might be reached privately or through the facility of a third party service, such as mediation.
Upon agreement, the Order will be legally drafted, signed by the parties and then sent to the Court for approval. Once approved, it will be sealed by the Court and so becomes legally binding upon the parties to it.
This fixed fee assumes that you have generally agreed what is to happen should the relationship end.
