3 Comments Family & de facto law, financial agreements, consent orders
[QUOTE=JAJKP2012] ... Does the fact that domestic abuse/family violence has occurred in the past need to be addressed in the orders? Is it a requirement that the issue be brought before the Family court? [/QUOTE]
It's a requirement that any consent order draft have annexed it to it (see click-able link below) a declaration stating whether a child or family member has been or is at risk of being subjected to or exposed to abuse, neglect or family violence.
Both parties or there solicitor needs to fill in & sign this declaration. If there is an acknowledgment that FV has taken place, then you need to explain how the proposed orders attempts to deal with it... Something along the lines of Eamons suggestion may be sufficient...
Annexure to Draft Consent Parenting Order
Thanks for the replies, no AVO Eamon but I agree you're quite right, and I will most definitely have an order included to prevent any further abuse. The hardest but best thing I did was to walk away from it.
Once again Jaazzz, that link is perfect, exactly what I needed. Thanks for that.
I really appreciate your answers.
