Once the court seals the consent orders, the terms are final. The court has the power to set aside the consent orders if there are valid reasons such as these:

  • A party was forced to agree
  • There was not full and frank disclosure of the parties’ financial positions
  • There has been fraudulent behaviour
  • It is impossible to give effect to the orders or
  • There have been exceptional circumstances relating to one of the parties’ children that means the orders are no longer reasonable or workable.
