I do think I will modify my usual advice though. J Czutrin does carefully dance around the idea of final orders, never quite stating that they can NEVER happen without consent of both parties.

And of course, this case would not have come up if some judges didn't presume they could sign orders at will. So it can happen, and it shows that we must be prepared, be careful not to imply in the brief that we expect any kind of order to made.

The father was fortunate that he had some clear evidence to show that the last thing he expected was a final order, since he could show that he was only prepared for and expecting a negotiation session.
