New National Contravention List
When you have a parenting plan or parenting orders, it’s important to comply. The Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court have today announced the launch of a new national contravention list. This means that breaches of court orders will be dealt with quicker.
Under the new scheme, to take effect upon the commencement of the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court of Australia (FCFCOA) on 1 September 2021, contravention applications will be given a first return date within 14 days of filing.
The new list will be administered by registrars who will undertake an assessment of each matter and “where appropriate, allocate the matter to a Judge or Senior Judicial Registrar in a streamlined and timely manner”.
If the other parent is breaching orders, mediation can help. Call Tess from Argyll Mediation on 0448 837372. Lismore, Ballina, Gold Coast and Brisbane.
