FAMILY LAW RULES 2004 - RULE 10.04

How to accept an offer

             (1)  A party may accept an offer to settle by notice, in writing, to the party making the offer.

             (2)  A party may accept an offer to settle at any time before:

                     (a)  the offer is withdrawn; or

                     (b)  the court makes an order disposing of the application or appeal.

             (3)  If an offer to settle is accepted, the parties must lodge a draft consent order.

Note 1:       The draft consent order should set out the orders agreed to by the parties and must be signed by both parties. Once lodged, it will be considered by the court under rule 10.17. The parties may agree to the dismissal of all applications.

Note 2:       Paragraph 6.13(1)(d) requires that, if a party seeks a consent order and a case guardian has been appointed for the party, the case guardian must file an affidavit stating why the consent order is in the best interests of the party, and any other matter the court may require.
