Final Parenting Orders are Orders made by the Court that detail the parenting arrangements for a child or children. These Orders can be made either by agreement between parties or, if the parties are unable to agree to arrangements, by a judge in the course of legal proceedings.
When the Court makes Orders, it does so on the basis that those Orders are final and will remain in place until the child turns 18. However, circumstances often change, and it is not always the case that Orders made by the Court will continue to be appropriate and effective.
In these circumstances, a parent may wish to vary the existing Orders in consideration of these changing circumstances.
If the parents can agree to a variation of the agreement, they can file an Application for Consent Orders that varies the original Orders.
“a significant change of circumstances for the child must be shown in order for the court to agree to vary/change final Parenting Orders. However if the parents agree to new terms they can request that Orders by Consent be made by the court.”Back to News
