Hello, my husband and I are still residing in the same house, but he told me he will be filing for divorce. On Friday I received a consent order regarding custody of our two children. I do not agree with the order and do not want to sign it as written. I am not sure how to respond to it or what I should do.
You should seek the advice of experienced divorce counsel and you should not sign anything at this point.
You should hire an attorney. The funds to pay one are yours too, not just his.

If you do not agree with the order as written you need to hire an attorney to review the order with you and give you advice on how to move forward. Even if you did agree with the order you should hire an attorney to explain the order and the repercussions of signing it.
You can ignore it and address the issues in the divorce.
