What needs to be done if one Parent breaches the Parenting Order in Australia?

By Paris Cominos

It's the case that parenting orders created by agreement or via the court are occasionally contravened by either of the parties and the causes for this can be different and many. Application for Contravention of Orders are generally filed in the Federal Magistrates Court, but can be filed in the Family Court of Australia where the topic is said to be elaborate such as where allegations of physical abuse of children have been made.

If you are considering imposing parenting orders here are a few elements that you must take into consideration:

- An order can't be complied with if one party did not know about it. Has the party been appropriately served, are they conscious that the Order exists? Do they fully understand their requirement regarding the Orders?

- Is the order up to date? Are the orders up to date as well as binding or were they for a selected time period and that time has now passed by or have there been resultant orders created?

- Is the order enforceable, quite simply, does it denote what is to happen, when it is to happen, by whom, where and just how? By way of example an order that finds that one party has reasonable telephone communication with the child this can look too vague, unclear and problematic to apply.

- What exactly is the most economical alternative to rectify the problem? Is making an Application for Contravention truly the best solution for your case, perhaps family dispute resolution can be relevant or an introductory letter from your family lawyer to the other side can remedy the problem in the first scenario.

- Has one party taken the child or children in breach of parenting orders and is refusing to return them? Potentially an Application for a Recovery Order might be more beneficial while observing that the child's best interest is vital consideration in deciding whether to create a recovery order.

- Has the infringing party made available a good excuse for breaching the orders? If the court learn that the individual has broken a parenting order, it will take into consideration whether a practical excuse has been made by the breaching party.

The penalties that the court could enforce for infringing a parenting order include:

- Order the party to go to a post split parenting programs

- Order make-up time for the time losses with the child as a result of the contravention

- Demand a man or woman to get into a bond

- Order the party to pay out some or most of the applicant's legal charges

- Require individual to take part in community services or that the fine be settled or maybe even order incarceration.

LastlyLastlyTo concludeFinally if you are considering presenting an Application for Contravention of Parenting Orders it is essential that you obtain the advice from family lawyer.
