Application to vary the primary order
To file an application to vary an order, you will need to file an ‘Initiating Application’ with a supporting affidavit. This affidavit will need to outline the significant change of circumstances that have arisen, such that it is in the best interests of the child or children that the parenting orders be varied.
It is quite a difficult to establish that a change in circumstances are significant enough to warrant the alteration of existing parenting orders.
If you have any concerns about your obligations under a parenting order, or the contravention of a parenting order, our family law team can assist you to understand your legal rights and responsibilities, as well as your options moving forward with Contravention Orders.
