How to agree with OP's New Final Orders before Trial Date

I'm sorry I've had to add another topic. I tried to add it to one of my previous ones, but I can't reply to my own message...

This is quite urgent. I want to find out what will most likely happen in the following situation...
 
I have a trial date for this coming Friday. It's a children's matter regarding schooling.
 
I am the applicant. In my application my orders were A, and the respondent's were B.
 
As part of our final orders, submitted 2 weeks ago, my orders are now C (trying to compromise) and the Respondent's is D or E.
 
After everything, and the emotional drain this has had, I am agreeable to the respondent's D orders.
 
How can I agree to D before the trial, and not have them try to come back with costs?
 
I'm now an SRL.

About 6 weeks ago, I tried to agree with D. (before the original poster had changed his final orders to D) He then tried to make me sign a binding financial agreement, agreeing to D and $0 Child Support.

His Final Orders now just say the children should attend D school. (no Child support mentioned)
 
Can I now, agree with the respondent's new final orders of D and not have to pay his costs? Does he have to agree and accept, if I'm agreeing to his actual new and final orders? And how do I do that?

I'm going to contact a lawyer tomorrow, but am also worried about contacting the right one...to get the right advice.
 
You can agree simply by writing to the other lawyer and saying "D" is ok
I doubt they will go for costs if you are agreeing with their orders

Then when you turn up on Friday you simply have to sign off on the orders, have them presented to the judge to ok, and go home

Make sure what you actually sign is D and not D with some changes

Thanks Wolf.

So I still need to attend on the day. Is it done in Chambers or in Court? Who would do up the Orders?

And what if they try to add changes to D? Is that typical?

And does that mean I should turn up on the day prepared to go to trial?
1: Id say you will still be there on Friday
2: The other side wil most likely do the orders but, if you have a copy of D you can present those. What you sign wll be typed up so make surre you get a copy of what you signed
3: Of course they can change or back out of anything they like
4: Yes, be ready for hearing

Um, this coming Friday hey. This coming Friday is Easter Friday. I very much doubt that court is going to be held on Easter Friday. Mumvity, you might like to get your facts straight.

And you keep taking about the "original poster". That usually means someone who posted FIRST in the forum (that is under discussion). Does this mean that both you AND your ex are on this forum? Or what? Please explain.

And please explain what you mean by going to court this Friday. Given that you have posted today, Sunday 9 April, and Easter Friday is 14 April.
Even if I'm agreeable to the respondents Final Orders. What would be the point of a hearing?

Wouldn't that be a waste of the Court's time? Well, everyone's time really - if I'm willing to accept the respondent's final orders…
Yes, I agree, court on Easter Friday would be a waste of the court's time. THEY WILL NOT BE OPEN ON EASTER FRIDAY.

Ah Wolf, I expect we aren't going to get a straight answer from Mumvity. She was on line when I posted my first response, which she totally ignored, and she was still on line when I posted the second response. And she didn't answer either question about appearing in court on Easter Friday, or about why she keeps referring to the original poster. All very odd indeed. Especially for someone who is apparently living within Australia.

 Boots, it seems an unusually long winded way to go about being a fake or a troll though. Shes been posting for weeks. It is very strange that you got no response to a pretty simple question though, and yes, i saw them online as well.

I just noticed they joined the week i started to get my "following" I guess it could be related, just an odd way to go about it….

As for O P i think it actually means opposing parent as well these days, it is something i have noticed on a few Facebook groups relating to the other party. It confused me at first.

Mumvity, come out come out wherever you are….Clear this up for people

I looked back at Mumvity's post and she used the word "original poster", not an abbreviation.

Mumvity, for future reference.
Original poster means - the first person who posted in a particular topic.
If you mean, the person (otherwise known as party) who filed a court application first (Initiating Application), then they are the Applicant. The person (or party) who has to reply is called the Respondent.
Other Party is a generic term for referring to the other person in the case.

Now, before we go too much further, you will need to answer the questions, that have already been asked.
You referred to this coming Friday. That day is Easter. So are you actually going to court on Easter Friday?
And please clarify who you are referring to when you say "original poster".
Well it seems like we have been had.. no appearance of the ORIGINAL POSTER since you picked up the error  :-)
