Family Law Act places requirements upon persons not to interfere with or hinder a person in carrying out their obligations under parenting orders. A non-complying party can be the subject of a contravention application.
A contravention application is a distinct, technical application, where the court considers whether a party has contravened an order, and if so, what penalty if any is appropriate to impose on that parent. The purpose of a contravention application is to determine whether a party is guilty of not complying with a court order.
Due to the technical and complex nature of the contravention application, please contact our office to discuss your situation.
