Child Relocation Perth  – Informing Court of relevant family violence orders

In child relocation cases the Family Court of Western Australia makes orders concerning children. The Court must make an Order that is consistent with any family violence order and does not expose the child to an unacceptable risk of family violence to the extent that it does not conflict with the child’s best interests.

Child Relocation Perth and the Duty of a Party to the Proceedings

Party to the proceedings ought to inform the Court if either knows that a family violence order applies to the child, or a member of that child’s family.

Child Relocation Perth and the Duty of Other Persons

A person not party to the proceedings ought to inform the Court if they know that a family violence order applies to the child, or a member of that child’s family.

Family law matters can be very complex. It is important to note that this is not legal advice. We therefore recommend you seek specific legal advice from one of our very experienced Child Relocation Perth lawyers if you need assistance interpreting how the Family Law Act affects you. You are invited to discuss your particular matter with our Legal Practitioner Director Shannon Bodeker.

Shannon’s special interest is child relocation and she completed her Honours thesis “The Freedom of Movement of Residential Parents (and others) subsequent to the Family Law Reform Act 1995 (Cth)” in this area. In 1998 she was involved in the landmark High Court case AMS v AIF; AIF v AMS (1999). Her thesis was cited by His Honour Justice Kirby in that case.
