How long will it take for the Court to make orders?

This depends on the Application. Generally children’s matters get priority at the Family Court and the Federal Circuit Court over property matters. Of those cases, priority will be given to those with the most serious risk. It also depends on the individual registry where the Application is filed. Generally however, the Courts are slow. You can generally expect that your matter will not reach a final hearing within 12 months. We recommend attempting to mediate a negotiated settlement wherever possible.
An Application for Consent Orders can be made to the Family Court where agreement has been reached. This is a cost-effective and fast method of obtaining orders and is generally finalised in a matter of weeks.
