Consent order

A consent order can formalise an agreement between parties in court proceedings. This ensures that any agreement converts into an order. It will then be legally binding.

Consent orders can be used in the following ways:

  • In care proceedings. For example, to extend the timetable by which an expert has to provide a report.
  • In private law proceedings. Parents or family members may reach an agreement in mediation. They can then apply to court for a consent order so that their agreement is reflected in an order.

To apply for a consent order in Children Act 1989 proceedings, parties need to complete a C100 form. This includes a section for those applying for a consent order.
