Requests for consent are filed with the Tribunal and can take different forms – they can be “uncontested applications” in which one party files the application and draws the court`s attention to the fact that the other party has not raised objections (sometimes one party does not accept an application, but will not object to it either); “approval of applications” in respect of which one party files the application and informs the Tribunal that the other party agrees with the request to remedy the application; or the gold standard of applications for approval, the “joint motion”, in which both parties put their signatures on the application and ask the court to grant the requested remedy. Unless the custody agreement says otherwise, a parent may move and not disclose their address to the other parent. Some of the provisions to be taken into consideration are as follows: each parent must keep the other parent informed of an up-to-date address and telephone number, one parent must inform the other parent that he or she has moved within so many days after the move that the parents must communicate to each other if they plan to transfer the child to another residence, etc. The disputes are contradictory. Inherent conflict means that most complaints are about parties who don`t like themselves, and there`s a natural tendency to refuse to move on something. But sometimes, in the midst of this systemic friction, it makes sense to make deals with the other party, especially on procedural issues. Most lawyers don`t want judges to think they are tenacious or obstructive on trivial issues. When it`s time to agree on something, is it better to file a disposition or application for approval or enter into a private agreement without involving the court? Applications for approval can do the same thing as provisions, but they usually take longer. According to the confederation`s local civil rules, an opposing party has 14 days to file a response to a request. There is no need to set a hearing date for a petition in federal court and motions can be approved at any time, but if the case manager for the federal judge or a judge or the judge himself does not recognize that the motion is not being challenged, the court can wait 14 days to see if the opposing party files an appeal. A typical example of a request for consent is a request for an extension of time. It is not uncommon for a party to request additional time for or near the deadline. In these circumstances, when a party makes a request for approval, it may not know until after the expiry of the time limit whether the court will accept the extension.
