Family Law Consent Orders

30th January 2017

By Nicole Pozovsky

Are you separating and looking to resolve things without going to Court? Do you need advice about entering into Consent Orders? Are you worried Consent Orders won’t address the specific dates that are significant to your family?

We know that there is no ‘one size fits all’ answer for separating families. Each family is different and accordingly, each family requires a tailored response.

At Doolan Wagner Family Lawyers, we appreciate that the holidays can be stressful time for separating families, particularly when young children are involved. It is for this very reason that we encourage families to address occasions of special significance when preparing Consent Orders.

Consent Orders can be tailored to the individual needs of your family and provide you with stability and predictability in an otherwise tumultuous time. Addressing occasions of special significance in Consent Orders also avoids the stress and conflict that can arise form trying to negotiate last minute arrangements during the holiday period.

We do our best to gain an understanding of the days that are important to your family so that we can prepare orders that address your families needs.

At Doolan Wagner Family Lawyers, our team has experience preparing orders that address parenting arrangements for significant occasions such as: Christmas, Easter, Chanukah, Passover, Yom Kippur, Chinese New Year, Ramadan and Eid to name a few.

We understand that for some families, preserving and sharing these religious traditions with their children is of critical importance. We also understand that parents want to share meaningful time with their children during these religious occasions, and we endeavour to negotiate arrangements that permit such time.

An example of arrangements made for Chanukah include:

1. That During Chanukah:

1.1.  If the children are not otherwise in the Mother’s care, the children will spend time with the Mother as agreed, and failing agreement, on the first night of Chanukah:

1.1.1 From 3:00pm or after school until 5:00pm the following day.

1.2 If the children are not otherwise in the Father’s care the children will spend time with the Father as agree, and failing agreement, on the second night of Chanukah:

1.2.1 From 5:00pm until 5:00pm the following day.
