Thanks to new legislation introduced in 2021, and the ‘Form 11 Application for Consent Orders’ has now been replaced with “Application for Consent Orders – Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia (Family Law) Rules 2021 – RULE 10.04”.

For when you want Family Court Orders as agreed with your ex-spouse

By coming to an agreement with the your former spouse you can avoid lengthy and expensive litigation at the Family Court.


The cost of Family Court litigation is one of the most common concerns people face when they have a family law dispute. One of the ways this can be avoided is by reaching an agreement between you and the other party.


However, you may still prefer to have Family Court Orders for any possible enforcement in the future.

If you were married or in a de facto relationship with your ex-partner this will be for you. With an application for Consent Orders pursuant to the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia (Family Law) Rules 2021 – RULE 10.04, formally known as Form 11 Consent Orders, you can determine what financial, property, and parenting arrangements if you can come to an agreement with your ex-partner.

Arrangements you can make in a Consent Order

The financial and property arrangements that you can make are things like:

  • Property – how your property, income, financial resources, and debts should be shared between you and your ex-partner;
  • Maintenance – to provide financial support for a former partner; or
  • Child Support – in certain circumstances (under sections 96, 116, 123 or 129 of the Child Support Assessment Act 1989 (Cth)).

The parenting arrangements that you can make are things like:

  • Where your children live;
  • The amount of parental responsibility each parent gets; or
  • The amount of time each parent gets with the children.

Legally binding?

Once the Family Court makes the Consent Order, it will be legally binding. This means that if your ex-partner does not stick to the Consent Order, they will be liable for breaching a legally binding document.

The benefits of an application for consent Orders pursuant to the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia (Family Law) Rules 2021 – RULE 10.04, formally known as Form 11 Consent Orders, are that the parties can come to an agreement and have that agreement made into enforceable Family Court Orders.
