Hi
You need to contact a local family mediator

and arrange an appointment
The form you will need for the court is a C100 available here

do i have to draft a consent order?

Hi
You may not need to do this if the father is not likely to agree.
If he does not agree you will make the application on the normal way and the Court will make the order.

Hi
If the father is not going to agree to the Order then there is no need to prepare a Consent Order.
The usual application is made and the Court will produce an Order when the outcome has been decided
