Breaching a Parenting Order
If you take your child when you’re not supposed to under your parenting plan and your child’s other parent doesn’t consent you may be in breach of your Parenting Order. This is a serious offence and should be avoided. There may be other options available to you if you’d like to have more time with your children or if you want to move to another town, city or state.
If you do want to move you may be able to change your written parenting plan. Perhaps your child could spend school holidays or have longer visits with you throughout the year. If you and your ex-partner can’t agree on a change to your parenting plan, you can apply to the Court for permission to relocate. The Court will consider what is in the best interests of your child and may not agree to your relocation.
