BREACHES OF FAMILY COURT ORDERS

It happens all the time.  It should not!   It should be punished! 

The Family Court, and the Police who can prosecute, have poor track records for getting involved but this appears to be changing.  The Court itself now has wider powers but it will only act in the serious cases.  It does not want to open the floodgates to a constanty string of complaints between warring parents.

A parenting order is an order made by the Family Court that says who is responsible for the day-to-day care of a child, and when and how someone else important in the child's life, usually the other parent, can have contact with them.

It is important that the parents or other parties to the order co-operate together and try to make it work. Each should do what they are supposed to do under the order and not make things difficult for the other person.

How can you be sure of your obligations under a parenting

"Hi Netlaw,

I was really helped by this topic, particular the instant link to at least 25 recent reported decisions of the Family Court. It really helps those who don't know how to look up this stuff. Thanks . . . Kathryn - Balclutha April 2006"

"dear Netlaw,

My partner and I found all your family sites really good. We are fighting a maintenance and custody dispute with his ex and we cannot get legal aid so we are trying to go it alone and your site really helps. The judge actually commented on our documents saying that they were good. Thanks again . . . . Tuia"

"I liked the coverage and all the related documentation through the links. I liked being up to draw up my own simple Agreement. I wonder if you could put some real life case on Netlaw. It may be really interesting. Jenny M. May 2007"

"Up to date. Great. the IRD Child Support site is so hard to follow. You need a computer degree. You tell it like it is. (One pissed off father)

"Bloody fantastic coverage. Easy to understand and work out. Mike R - Auckland Central"
"Please advise - My partner pays his ex-wife child support every week. (The amount was agreed via a settlement agreement nutted out between lawyers at mediation.) Is this child support still payable on weeks when we have the children? (in school holidays we have the children for half of the time). It seems unfair for his ex-wife to be getting paid child support when we are supporting the children.
Netlaw replies - The access you enjoy in the holidays must be averaged out over the whole year. It does not apply on a weekly basis. That sounds unfair but that is the way it has been interpreted. "
