Can a consent order be changed?

Once the consent order is approved by a judge and sealed by the court, it is legally binding and cannot normally be altered without the consent of both parties. However, there are some instances where both parties agree to change in the consent order and resubmit the order to the court for approval.

An example of this is if both parties agree to reaplcing ongoing payments with a lump sum.
